The Fourth of July fell on a Sunday in 2021, which means several businesses, including banks will be shut for two days.

So, are banks are open on July 5th?

Here's a breakdown of the services banks and financial institutions will offer over the upcoming holiday weekend.

Are Banks Open on the Fifth July?

Traditionally, banks, like the majority of businesses, are closed on July 4 as on other federal holidays. However, because July 4 falls on a Sunday this year, the holiday is observed on Monday, July 5. That means most businesses and offices, including banks, are shut today.

Services that normally take one business day to complete—such as cashing a check for example—will not go through until the next business day, which this year is July 6.

It is worth noting, however, that ATMs and online banking services will remain available on July 4 and July 5.
