Why are payments not processed on weekends?
MYTH: Direct Deposits aren’t processed on weekends, but bill payments are. FACT: The ACH Network does not settle payments on weekends (or holidays) when the Federal Reserve system is closed. This applies to both ACH credits (Direct Deposits) and ACH debits (bill payments).

Do banks process payments on bank holidays?
Bank holidays are set in advance and recognized by the Federal Reserve. If banks are closed for a holiday or the weekend, they cannot process or transfer funds on your intended payroll date. Most banks and credit unions will be closed.
Why does it take so long to transfer money between banks?
It’s because all transfers for a bank are done in batches during the day, to an automated clearinghouse. This automated clearinghouse sorts them out and moves them to the receiving bank between two and four hours of being received. The receiving bank gets the transfer within the same day, most of the time!
