Good Friday 2022 takes place on Friday, April 15, and many Americans will observe the day by fasting and attending a religious service. But that doesn’t mean it’s a traditional bank holiday. Here’s what you need to know about banking hours on Good Friday.

Are Banks Closed On Good Friday?

Good Friday is not a federal holiday, so public services such as the post office, schools and libraries will mostly remain open on April 15. The stock market will close on Good Friday, however, meaning that Nasdaq, New York Stock Exchange and other exchanges will not be trading.

Eleven states recognize Good Friday as a state holiday. Nine of those states mark it as a full holiday: Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota and Tennessee. It’s an optional holiday in Texas and a half-day holiday in Kentucky. Residents of these states might find that some municipal services and businesses, as well as banks, are closed for Good Friday.

No major banks have reported that they will close completely on Good Friday. However, many leave the decision to close up to individual locations, so if you have important business to conduct on Good Friday, check the hours at your preferred branch.

Most locations should be open to deposit money, pay bills or take advantage of other services as normal. For the few that won’t be open, ATMs and online and mobile systems will all still be accessible if you find yourself needing to do some banking this Good Friday.
