If you have any banking you need done ahead of the New Year, it’s a good idea to get it done as soon as possible before banks close.
New Year’s Day is a Saturday and will likely cause many banks to be closed for the federal holiday.
Sometimes when a federal holiday lands on a Saturday, businesses choose to close their offices the Friday before.
Banks often choose whether to close the day before, so it’s a good idea to check before going on Friday, Dec. 31.
As for Jan. 1, it’s highly unlikely your bank is going to be open.
Bank hours for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day
Most major stores or businesses will be open on New Year’s Day, but banks being open is unlikely.
This means any transactions you make will not be processed until the banks reopen.
This will be Monday, Jan. 3.
If you want to make it before they close on New Year’s Eve, call ahead to make sure their hours aren’t shortened.
ATMs and online banking are still available to people during the holiday.
In a pinch, if your bank is linked with Venmo you may be able to deposit money into your account during the holiday.
