Please note that Meriwest Credit Union does not have a SWIFT Code and is unable to receive funds directly from a foreign financial institution via wire transfer. The foreign financial institution sending the funds must use another U.S. financial institution as an intermediary. The intermediary institution will forward the funds to Meriwest using our ABA Routing Number.
