Are Banks Open on Memorial Day 2018?

See if your bank is open on this 2018 bank holiday.

Memorial Day — observed on the last Monday in May each year — is celebrated to honor and remember those brave Americans who lost their lives during their service in the military. In 2018, Memorial Day falls on May 28 — which allows many people to have a three-day weekend to help kick off the unofficial start of summer.

Memorial Day also holds the distinction of being a federal holiday — meaning that government offices such as the post office and the Social Security Administration will be closed on that day, so plan accordingly. In the financial world, the New York Stock Exchange, SIMFA, Nasdaq and the Federal Reserve Bank will also be closed on Memorial Day.

Banking on Memorial Day

Due to Memorial Day’s status as a federally recognized holiday, odds are that you won’t be able to stop in at your local bank branch on May 28. If you’re seriously in need of some financial assistance, you will most likely be able to access your funds via outdoor ATMs as well as through online banking.

Now that you know most banks will be closed on Memorial Day, plan ahead to avoid any stress caused by not having access to your local branch.
