KEEPing a federal holiday calendar is a smart move to make sure you’re never stuck without bank access.
This year, make sure you know the vacation hours, opening and closing times for your local banking institution.
Are banks open on Thanksgiving Day?
Thanksgiving, which falls on Thursday, November 25 of this year, is a federal holiday.
This means that Chase Bank, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.
You will still be able to use the ATM, and depending on the type of ATM at your bank branch, this may mean that you can still make cash deposits.
In addition, it may take an additional day for the processing of financial transactions that you make using your online banking application.
Are banks open on Black Friday?
Black Friday, which falls on Friday, November 26 of this year, is not a federal holiday.
You should expect your local bank to be open on Black Friday.
