Are Banks Open on the Fourth of July?

Are banks open on the Fourth of July? Get the holiday bank hours for the top banks in the U.S.

 

Independence Day is one of the major U.S. holidays and that means many Americans will not be heading to work. Some may need think about using this time to run to the bank to complete an errand or some other financial chore. Because it is a national holiday, nearly all banks will not be open for business.

We contacted most of the largest U.S. banks and here are their holiday schedules for July 4th:

Independence Day Bank Hours

Bank Status (July 4th)
Chase Closed
Bank of America Closed
Wells Fargo Closed
TD Bank Closed
PNC Bank Closed (except some supermarket branches)
Capital One Closed
BB&T Closed
SunTrust Bank Closed (including in-store branches)
Citibank Closed

Generally, you can expect banks will be closed on the Fourth of July.

There is an may be an exception with certain PNC Bank’s supermarket locations, some of which will continue to operate during the holiday -- it's advised that you call ahead to your location before making the trip.

Other banks with in-store branches, such as SunTrust Bank, will not be open though.

Banking Without a Branch

In the event that you must take care of any financial responsibilities during the holiday, you can still do so with the help of online, mobile and ATM banking.

Online and mobile banking can help you take care of the majority of your banking needs. If you must get cash, head over to an ATM. Bank lobbies and ATMs will operate as usual, even on a holiday.

Online bill pay

If you need to send out a bill payment easily and quickly, consider your bank's online bill pay service, which is usually free.

Essentially, it sends a check on your behalf -- you set the payee information (aka. biller details).

Mobile deposit

Remember that it is very convenient to simply use your bank's mobile app to take a picture of a check for remote deposit.

This will save you a trip to a branch or ATM.

The only thing to worry about is the mobile check deposit limit.

Every bank is different and mobile deposit limits may even vary by account. For a check with a large amount, you may not be able to use mobile deposit -- still requiring you to visit a branch or ATM.

Transaction Posting Delays

Since bank holidays and weekends are generally not considered normal business days, note that any transactions such as fund transfers and bill payments will not begin to process until the next business day.

Take that into account if you have any bills with upcoming due dates.

Missing a payment deadline could lead to late payments fees and other penalties and charges that could have been avoided easily.

If all else fails or you have any additional questions, you can contact a customer service representative on the phone.

<p>Some bank choose to stay open on certain federal/national holidays. Although a definite plus for customers, it’s not always fair for the workers. Do you think banks should remain open on holidays or is it unnecessary?</p>
