Update: Find out if your bank will be open this New Year’s Eve!
New Year’s Eve may not be recognized as a federal holiday but it is still one of the biggest celebrations of the year, but how will this affect the bank holiday schedule? Check out the New Year’s Eve bank hours at the top 10 banks in America.
It won’t be all fun and games for the banks on this day of partying though, as many will remain open. There will be a wide variety of holiday hours from the different banks this New Year’s Eve of 2013, as they try to balance both satisfying the customer’s needs with the cost of opening the bank on a partial holiday.
Some of the biggest banks in the U.S., including Bank of America, Chase and Citibank, announced that they will resume normal business hours, while others, including Wells Fargo, HSBC and Capital One, announced that they will be closing a bit earlier than usual — from an hour to four hours. One bank will be completely closed on this day.
Despite the change in closing times, it might be a good idea to visit the bank on this day to complete any necessary financial chores you need to get done before New Year’s Day. Remember that you can always conduct your banking through online and mobile channels. If you need to get cash from the ATM, you can rest assured that ATMs will remain accessible any day of the week, even through the holidays.
Tip: Make sure to use your bank’s ATM to avoid any fees. If you don’t have a choice, be sure to read this article on 6 easy ways to avoid all ATM fees before heading out!
