Good Friday Holiday Confusion Strikes Post Office, Bank Customers

Posted: March 28th, 2013 in Holidays by LALATE

Good Friday Holiday Confusion Strikes Post Office, Bank Customers open closed mail

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Is Good Friday a holiday, and are the Post Office and banks open or closed on Good Friday? OPM, the Office of Personnel Management, reminds news that Good Friday is a state holiday across some U.S. states and territories; but Good Friday is not a federal holiday. The confusion was addressed by OPM earlier this year in announcing to news what to expect this Easter March 31 and Good Friday March 29.

First, OPM announced to news in January this year’s federal holidays. Easter and Good Friday are not federal holidays, however. In a news statement, OPM said “federal law (5 U.S.C. 6103) establishes the following public holidays for Federal employees.” In some cases, if the holiday falls on Sunday “the holiday usually is observed on Monday (if the holiday falls on Sunday).” But Easter is not a federal holiday, nor is Good Friday.

OPM explains that Post Office closures and mail service eruptions derive from OPM-clarified federal holidays, not state holidays. Since Easter and Good Friday are not federal holidays, the Post Office won’t be closed for Good Friday March 29, 2013 or for the day after Easter, April 1, 2013. Mail service will continue as usual. As OPM reminds news, the next federal holiday and Post Office closure is not until Monday May 27, 2013 for Memorial Day.

The confusion stems from State Holidays, however. Good Friday is a state holiday in twelve U.S. states along with US territories of Guam, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. As a result, in those states and territories that recognize by law Good Friday as a state holiday, residents can expect closures of state and local government offices, agencies and similar. It states that don’t recognize Good Friday as a holiday, those same offices might be have shortened hours on Friday.

Is Wall Street closed on Good Friday? Wall Street and the U.S. stock market is closed on Good Friday along with many educational instructions, officials tell news.

But the big confusion is local financial institutions. Banks regulated by the federal government remain open on Good Friday, OPM tells news. But state and local credit unions may close or observe shorter hours. Public transportation, and retail operators, generally remain open.
