Swift is a secured electronic communications network for transmitting messages and payments among banks. Most of the world banks are connected to this network. Every Swift member bank has a code of its own.
The Benleumi Swift code is: FIRBILITXXX

To obtain your account number in IBAN configuration, contact your branch.
