Are you wondering if banks are open on Good Friday?

Because Good Friday is not a federal holiday in the U.S., most banks will be open.

Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, but it’s considered a state holiday in a Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Tennessee and Texas, according to Wikipedia.

Some banks in these states are not required to stay open on Good Friday. In Connecticut, for instance, banks in the state must provide two weeks of advance notice and post notices in branch lobbies if they decide to close for a state holiday (that is not also recognized as a federal holiday).

If you are unsure about your bank’s schedule for Good Friday, it never hurts to call ahead. Visit our Bank Profile page to find your bank’s customer service phone number and a branch nearest you.

The New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ are closed on Good Friday.

TD Bank is closed on Easter Sunday.
