To start the new year off right, you might want to drop by your bank and make sure your finances are in order. But because New Year’s Day is a standard Federal Reserve bank holiday, celebrated by most — if not all — banks, be sure to visit your bank before then.

How To Access Your Money If Your Bank Is Closed

Online banking and ATMs allow you to access your funds even if your bank is closed. Many ATMs are open 24/7, and many bank branches even have drive-thru ATMs that are open when the bank itself is closed.

If you need to purchase a money order, options are still available. The trick is finding a provider that stays open long enough for you to complete the transaction. For example, Walmart sells money orders at its Supercenter and Neighborhood Market stores, which will be open on the New Year’s holidays.
