<img src=

Financial institutions observe federal holidays, and Memorial Day is one of them. That means vast majority of banks, credit unions, brokerages and stock markets aren’t going to be open, even if they usually have Monday hours.

Here are just some of the banks that are going to close their regular branches in recognition of Memorial Day:

  • Bank of America
  • Bank of the West
  • Capital One
  • Chase Bank
  • Citibank
  • Citizens Bank
  • Fifth Third Bank
  • HSBC
  • PNC Bank
  • SunTrust
  • TD Bank
  • US Bank
  • Wells Fargo

Are There Any Exceptions?

In some cases, financial institutions’ branches within supermarkets may be open. However, this isn’t something that is a guarantee, regardless of where the branch is situated.

If you need to know with certainty whether your bank will be open, check out its website or call their toll-free number.

Meanwhile, you’ll still be able to use ATMs on Memorial Day — so you can  If withdraw cash or a deposit that way.

Similarly, you’ll still be able to access self-serve banking services on your bank’s website and mobile phone application. Just be aware that your transactions won’t clear until the next business day.

Are Banks Open on Memorial Day Weekend?
