2013 Christmas bank holiday: Do banks close early on Christmas Eve?

See also

What time do banks close on Christmas Eve and are any banks open on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 2013?

Many banks will close early on Christmas Eve, with some closing as early as Noon on Tuesday. Christmas is a federal holiday, so most banks are closed on Christmas Day. See a list of bank closing times below.

If you have banking to do at Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, or other banks and credit unions, it's best to get it done in the morning on Christmas Eve. Even TD Bank, which is open on many federal holidays, is closed on Christmas.

If you don't get to the bank by closing time on Tuesday, you will only be able to do banking online or by using an ATM. If you bank online, you can transfer funds, pay bills or check your balance while the bank is closed. Bank ATMs are available just about everywhere if you need cash. Just make sure you use your own bank's network to avoid paying a fee.

If you don't see your bank or credit union on this list, contact your local branch for information on holiday hours.

Banks will re-open on Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013 for business as usual. If you have to do an important transaction at your local branch, you will have to wait until Thursday when banks re-open after the holiday.
