Are banks open on Thanksgiving? Bank of America, Capital One and more

Thanksgiving Day, which falls on November 24 this year, is a federal holiday in the United States, which means that many, if not most, government offices and public facilities are closed.

While banks are not required to close on Federal Reserve holidays, they typically do so or have reduced hours.

Still, ATMs and online banking are operating normally, allowing customers to withdraw money and manage their accounts over the bank holidays, which always fall on the fourth Thursday of November. Some banks’ call centers may remain open on Thanksgiving Day.

However, many bank transactions – including money transfers – are not processed until the next business day, which would be November 25 (Black Friday), the day after Thanksgiving. If you have bills to pay or other important financial commitments, it’s worth getting those out of the way by Wednesday to avoid a headache.

Most banks are open during normal business hours on Black Friday. But it’s worth remembering that about half of US states have a public holiday the day after Thanksgiving. These states include California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West virginia .

Bank branches operated in other businesses, such as supermarkets and university campuses, may also be closed due to the closure of the sites.

Here is a list of banks that are closed on Thanksgiving. Contact your local bank to confirm normal opening hours.
