Prepare for upcoming bank holidays

As year-end nears, a number of bank holidays are also approaching. As a reminder, the Federal Reserve Banks observe all federal holidays and are closed for business on the following dates:

  • Columbus Day: Monday, October 11
  • Veterans Day: Thursday, November 11
  • Thanksgiving Day: Thursday, November 25
  • Christmas Day: Saturday, December 25*

*For holidays falling on a Saturday, Federal Reserve Banks and branches will be open the preceding Friday.

Looking ahead to Juneteenth National Independence Day

In June 2021, President Joe Biden signed legislation making Juneteenth National Independence Day a federal holiday. Next year, Juneteenth National Independence Day falls on a Sunday, which means Federal Reserve Banks and branches will be closed the following Monday, June 20, 2022.

Don’t forget to program this change into your back-end systems to ensure your payment operations continue to run smoothly through the Juneteenth holiday.
