The correct answer to this question is Yes. Banks are closed on President's Day. The day is a federal holiday to celebrate all past leaders and the present President. It is also considered a bank holiday, which means that banks are closed on this day.
It is the knowledge that banks are closed on federal holidays, which is why those who may need to conduct business with banks ensure they do so before the holiday occurs. Along with banks being closed, schools are also closed on President's Day, as well as federal buildings. Government officials and military bases are often closed on that day.

Most banks are closed on Presidents Day. Presidents Day is considered to be a federal holiday, which means that even employees can take a break from their usual work. This can be a hassle for some people who would really need to do transactions on this day.
It will help if you already know when Presidents Day is going to happen in the upcoming year so that you can plan when you should do your bank transactions. For the year 2020, Presidents Day will happen n February 17. This it eh 3rd Monday of February. Presidents Day has been celebrated every third Monday of February from 1971. You can still contact your bank just to be sure.
President’s Day is considered to be a bank holiday, which means that most, if not all banks, will be closed on this day. People are recommended to do their bank transactions on another day, although the ATMs will be open to make it easier for people to withdraw cash.
People can also use some of the ATMs to deposit. It would depend on their bank and where they are located. Most American workers will have a day off for this holiday, and they would rather spend the day resting or doing stuff that they will not be able to do if they need to be at work.
