Are Banks Open on Veterans Day?

Veterans Day honors all veterans of the United States military services and wars. Veterans Day is a federal holiday, most banks, courthouses, post offices, schools, and other government offices are closed. Additionally, the bond market is closed on Veterans Day and other federal holidays, but stock trading remains functioning.

Banks ultimately have the option to remain open at their discretion. If there is any uncertainty, observing business hours, checking websites, or placing a call to your banking institution will confirm if a financial institution, school, or government office is closed.

The days proceeding and following a federal holiday are usually unindated with customers at banks and other government offices so plan accordingly and be prepared to wait or postpone your transaction if you are pressed for time.
