Memorial Day is a federal holiday, which means there’s no mail and certain finances are put on hold as well. While most banks are closed, a few choose to stay open, so it may be best to check with your local branches. Online banking and ATMs will of course remain open, though transactions such as transfers may not show up until the next day.
According to Saving Advice, a couple banks will stay open and they include US Bank, which may be open until 2:00 p.m., but you should call to confirm; PNC Bank supermarket branches; Huntington Bank in-store branches with holiday hours; and SunTrust in-store branches. Banks that are closed for the holiday include Citibank, Bank of America, HSBC, Capital One, Chase, Regions Bank, TD Bank, Union Bank, and Wells Fargo.
Credit unions, post offices, libraries and state liquor stores should be closed as well. Any city, county, federal and state offices are closed, which means the DMV and court proceedings. Schools are also closed. Other federal holidays for 2015 include:
New Year’s Day
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Memorial Day always falls on the last Monday in May. And, as far as transportation goes, check your local schedules for trains and buses’ holiday schedules.
