Are Banks Open on Labor Day 2018?

Find out now if your bank will be closed on Labor Day 2018.

Labor Day 2018 falls on Sept. 3, and millions of Americans will have the day off from work. Deemed the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day always falls on the first Monday of September.

A good Labor Day weekend involves two things: a great destination and some spending money. If you need to get cash from your bank’s ATM or speak to a bank teller, check to see if your bank is open on Labor Day, as many banks might be closed. Regardless, make sure you plan ahead of time so you aren’t out of cash when you’re out of town or at a barbecue with friends.

Are Banks Open on Labor Day?

Financial institutions generally follow the Federal Reserve schedule, and because Labor Day is a holiday observed by the central bank, expect most branch locations to be closed. The NYSE, Nasdaq and SIFMA will also be closed on Labor Day. Generally speaking, banks that are open on a holiday are often those with branches located inside a store — like a supermarket — so make sure you inquire in advance.
