WASHINGTON (12/23/13)--Like many in the rest of the country, members of the U.S. Congress and federal government employees get some much-needed time off during the holiday season.
The U.S. House has been out of session since Dec. 13, and the Senate finished its 2013 work late last week. Both bodies are scheduled to return to work on Jan. 6.
Federal agencies follow the U.S. Office of Personnel Management schedule over the holiday period, which means they are closed Dec. 25 and Jan. 1. Those agencies include:
- The National Credit Union Administration;
- The Federal Reserve;
- The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau;
- The Federal Housing Finance Agency;
- The U.S. Small Business Administration;
- The Federal Trade Commission;
- The U.S. Treasury;
- The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency; and
- The U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development.
Credit unions can check their state regulator's website for those holiday schedules.
