For 2021 bank holidays falling on Sunday, Banks and Branches will be closed the following Monday.

What is a Bank Holiday?

A bank holiday is a business day during which financial institutions are closed. Bank holidays are most relevant for physical branch locations because many online banking services continue to operate.

The dates are major federal holidays when most financial institutions—stock exchanges, brokerage firms, and traders—also take the day off. Although rare, bank holidays can also be declared to prevent bank runs.

Bank Holiday 2021 Exceptions

Most online banking systems will still allow access by customers, even on bank holidays. Popular online banking services include deposits, withdrawals, transfers, and bill payments (essentially, the majority of the basic transactions that an individual or retail customer would need throughout the day). It's important to point out that while you can make deposits on a bank holiday, they won't get added to your account as they normally would until the next regular business day.
