Are Banks Open on Easter?

These are the banks that will be open on Easter Sunday.

While Easter is celebrated by many people throughout the U.S., it is not recognized as a holiday by the Federal Reserve System. Neither is Good Friday, the day that marks the death and crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Because Easter is not a recognized federal holiday, you might think your bank will be open for business on Easter Sunday — this year on April 16. In most cases, however, you’d be mistaken.
