Presidents’ Day is a federal holiday, which means that there is no mail and certain finances are put on hold as well. While most banks are closed, a few may choose to remain open today so it is best to check with your local branches. Online banking and ATMs will, of course, be open, though transactions such as transfers may not show up until the next day. U.S. stock and bond markets like the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ will be closed for the Presidents’ Day holiday. In addition, because the Federal Reserve is closed, even if your bank is open today, most things will not be able to be processed until the next day anyway.

TD Bank branches will be open on Presidents’ Day today, according to the company website. Some Wells Fargo branches will also stay open for the holiday, but it’s important to check with your nearby locations, just in case.

The banks that are closed for the holiday include but are not limited to: Bank of America, Bank of the West, Capital One Bank, Chase, Citibank, Comerica Bank, Compass Bank, Fifth Third Bank, HSBC, Huntington National Bank, KeyBank, PNC Bank, Regions, RBS Citizens, Santander Bank, SunTrust Bank and US Bank. These banks that are closed for the holiday will resume services on the following day.
