Our routing number (264281432) and physical address (501 LaFayette Drive, Oak Ridge, TN 37830
Your (the receiver's) name, physical address, and account number
That's it! Just remember that for international transfers, we do not have a SWIFT code. Instead, we use the routing number 264281432.


To send a transfer:

Get in touch.
Initiate the transfer by visiting a branch or calling us at 800-482-1043. Please have the following handy:
The recipient's name, account number, and physical address
The receiving financial institution's name, routing number, and physical address
The receiving financial institution's SWIFT code for an international transfer
That's it! Just remember a couple notes:
The same-day processing cutoff time (Monday - Friday) is 2:30 p.m. EST for submitting by phone or 3:30 p.m. EST for submitting by branch.
Consumer outgoing wire transfers are $15 for domestic and $95 for international.
