Are Banks Open Today? See Full List of All Bank Holidays

Find out if your bank is one of the banks closed today.

Not knowing which banks are open on holidays can be frustrating, especially if you need to deposit a check or inquire about a loan only to discover that your branch is closed. Because banks are private enterprises, they can choose to remain open just about anytime they want, including Saturday and Sunday. However, just about all banks in the U.S. close to observe federal holidays.

Special circumstances might also cause banks to shut their doors, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of social distancing rules imposed during the pandemic, many banks have closed branches or implemented special rules on when and how customers can visit a branch. The best way to find out when a bank is open is to contact it directly or check its website.

What National Holidays Are Also Bank Holidays?

Each bank can set its own schedule, but most adhere to the federal holiday calendar observed by the U.S. Federal Reserve, which outlines the 10 federal holidays that are also banking holidays. Here’s a quick look:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.)
  • Presidents’ Day (Washington’s birthday)
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Columbus Day
  • Veterans Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

You can expect your bank to close its physical branches on these holidays every year, though the actual dates for most holidays change from year to year. The exceptions are New Year’s Day, which always falls on Jan. 1; Independence Day (July 4); Veterans Day (Nov. 11); and Christmas Day (Dec. 25).

Some banks also close or have reduced hours on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Easter, another major holiday, always falls on a Sunday, so most banks are closed anyway.

When holidays fall on a Saturday, banks typically close the preceding Friday. When holidays fall on a Sunday, banks close the following Monday.

Weekend Hours: Which Banks Are Open on Sunday?

What To Do If Your Bank Is Closed

Even if your bank branch is closed, there are a few ways to take care of most of your banking needs. The easiest option is to access your online bank account or use the bank’s mobile app. Thanks to the popularity of online and mobile banking, a number of online-only banks offer a full range of products and services that let you handle most of the banking tasks you could at a branch, including transferring money and making deposits.

Another option is to visit an ATM. Although the functionality of each machine is different, almost all will let you make withdrawals regardless of whether they’re in your bank’s ATM network. You can also make deposits at most in-network ATMs and even some that are out of you’re bank’s network.

Grocery Store Bank Branches

Finally, you can also inquire about whether or not there are certain branches remaining open even on holidays. Bank branches located inside of a grocery store, for example, will often keep the same hours as the store, even if most of that bank’s other branches are closed. So check to see if there are any nearby store locations that you can visit during bank holidays.
