I apologize for my stupidity, but will the banks close if the govt shuts down tonight?
Since it's Friday I'm not sure if the FDIC or banks are considered an "essential" or non-essential" department anymore.

I'm sorry. It's just that everything is turned upside down these days that I just want to be prepared for something stupid like this and I can see how they could find an excuse to include this segment for their own benefit.

Thanks.

The banks are privately owned. They aren't the government.

Banks just close if there is a panic.

Miggy, never feel ashamed to seek information.
And to be honest no one knows what to expect, so if you feel the need to prepare for a bank collapse then by all means prepare. If theres one thing I have learned its to always trust my intuition.
Good luck to you in these times of change and never be afraid to seek answers.

Johnny,
Never let another persons blind ignorance discourage you from learning or seeking answers in the long run it won't be you who looks silly for asking but those who criticized you out of their own ignorance and fear. As I said no one knows whats comming so trust what you feel and take those precautionary measures and prepare
with these times of change you have to let go of fear, and live :) never give up, never stop seeking.
Gooood luck to you as well my brother :)

So what, prepare for that too. When the government shuts down, I hope they send home the only guy that could have switched it all back on.

Gawd, wouldn't that be so cool if we woke Saturday morning to discover that the government disappeared, that they all quit and weren't coming back. The joke would be on all those that had already sent in their tax due checks before the 15th, lol.

Thanks for all of your kind answers.

My problem is I'm 50 years old (tissue) and until the past few years everything just made sense to me.

I don't know what this government considers "essential" employees.

What does it say when the government clock is ticking to midnight and Obama is at a Black Activist Rally in NYC tonight?

Or the fact that he took off to Rio on the day the Libya nightmare began.

I don't know who's in charge. If it's Geithner I can see where he might decide to close the banks.

What about the technicians who run the ATM terminals? Are they essential?

This is just a nightmare country anymore and if it weren't just as bad everywhere else in the world I'd be out of here.

Thanks again.

Banks are NOT 'the government', although The Fed works for the government.

Other banks will NOT close, nor will State or local governments.

Never be afraid of the cruel people on GLP. Everyone goes through it at first, then you learn to sling it right back at them as much as they do to you. Learn some good mom jokes and some comebacks to hecklers, then have fun with it. Trolls are meant to be trolled!

Apparently you slept through 9/11? Everything was hunky dory then, right? Nothing crazy happened then? No new agencies popping up overnight, like say, HOMELAND SECURITY? Yes, HLS makes sense to you. Good luck with that. My best guess is that you are a fear-mongering troll.
BTW, there are no banks closing. If there were, I would have heard about it.
