It's the Fourth of July, our annual celebration of freedom.
If you aren't already in the know, July 4 is the day the U.S. officially declared independence from the British, establishing America as the land of the free and home of the brave.
There are other kinds of freedom worth celebrating, too — like, say, financial freedom.

Are banks open on the 4th of July?
Banks, credit unions and other financial institutions are closed on Tuesday, July 4, 2023, in observance of Independence Day.
The same goes for the USPS, so the post office will also be closed and mail delivery is on pause.
That said many retailers, grocery stores and restaurants are open for business on the Fourth of July, so you can still go shopping or out to eat even though your bank business will have to wait until doors open on Wednesday, July 5.
Which banks are closed on the Fourth of July?
