State Holidays and Furlough Days
in Year 2009
  {Desk Calendar}

Due to the Department of Banking’s amended Policy Concerning Holiday Openings and Closings, Connecticut banks and credit unions are no longer obligated to close on legal holidays (as set forth in Section 1-4 of the Connecticut General Statutes) but may, at their option, close or remain open for business on a full or partial basis on any day designated as a legal holiday. Connecticut banks and credit unions are required to give at least two weeks’ advance notice to their customers of holiday openings and closings by posting such notice in the lobby of each office.

Please contact your financial institution directly to determine whether or not it will open for business on a state holiday.
