Are Banks Open or Closed on Veterans Day? (2020)


If you’re asking, “Are banks open on Veterans Day or are banks closed on Veterans Day?”, here is your answer. Veterans Day, which is always on the 11th of November, is a holiday recognized by the U.S. Federal Reserve System, so all banks are closed. The one exception to this rule is TD Bank, which will be open for limited hours on the holiday.

In 2020, Veterans Day lands on Wednesday, November 11th and banks will not be open.

Next year, 2021, Veterans Day lands on a Thursday.

If Veterans Day were to fall on a Sunday, which will happen in the year 2029, banks will be closed on Monday. This Monday is the next business day after the holiday and the date banks will observe Veterans Day.

If Veterans Day occurs on a Saturday, like in 2023, it will be observed on Friday instead.

If you have emergency banking that needs done in person on Veterans Day, it is a good idea to call ahead to check with your local branch, which will likely be closed.

A better option is to check the smaller branches located within some grocery stores or large supermarkets. These branches are often open on days when main standalone branches are closed, at least for part of the day. Again, call ahead so you do not waste a trip.

Alternatively, you can try to take care of your banking needs on Veterans Day through your bank’s website, mobile app, or at an ATM.

Below is a list of the dates Veterans Day will happen, along with the days the holiday will be observed.
