Why Aren’t Banks Open on Easter?
Banks, credit unions and other types of financial institutions typically set their hours based on the availability of centralized infrastructure for clearing checks and wiring money between banks.
Even if your bank will be closed you can still perform many basic banking tasks at the ATM, using the bank’s website, or the institution’s mobile phone app. These tools let you make deposits, withdrawals, transfers, and other transactions while the bank is closed.
Holiday closures are a great reason to start using web or mobile phone banking apps if you don’t already. Many of them include listings of your bank’s operating hours. You might also want to check out this printable holiday schedule.
