  1. We’re Heartbleed Free!

    You’ve heard recently about the discovery of a software vulnerability referred to as “Heartbleed”.  This issue could allow unauthorized access to normally protected information.

    Peoples Bank has performed rigorous vulnerability checks on our systems. We have found no evidence that any customer/Guest information has been compromised or that any of our systems have been accessed improperly.  We have also verified that our strategic partners are also protected.

    To further protect you and your information, we strongly recommend you immediately and regularly change passwords that are used to access content on the Internet, such as online banking, mobile banking, email, websites, social media, and mobile applications.

    The safety and security of your information and funds is always our priority at Peoples. We will continue to monitor our systems to ensure your information is secure. If new, relevant information develops on the “Heartbleed” issue, we will communicate that to you as well.

    Should you have any additional concerns about “Heartbleed” or any other banking matter, please feel free to contact us.

    Thanks for banking with us,




  2. ATMs and Your Security

    You might have heard recent speculation on the safety of ATMs.   Peoples Bank is aware of news reports regarding the risks of ATMs that use the Windows XP operating system. While the version of the operating system is one security consideration, Peoples is addressing risks with a in-depth defense strategy that extends well beyond the operating system of the ATM. Please know that the security and safety of your information and funds is our top priority. We are constantly addressing this risk and other risks with our ATM vendors and security experts to protect the security of our customers.

  3. Roll out the Orange Carpet

    Every year we at Peoples hold an award ceremony.  The idea is to celebrate Bankers who went above and beyond in 2013 and accomplished something truly spectacular.  We call this event the Peoples Promise Awards and we have award categories ranging from “Mortgage Banker of the Year” to “The Chairman’s Award” (the latter is our most distinguished and coveted award).

    Want to know who won?!?!  Well then start the drum roll, and scroll down to see the winners: Read More »

  6. Love is in the Air

    Happy Valentine’s Day, Friends!  We were going to write you a “roses are red, violets are blue” poem, but we didn’t think that was unusual enough for you.  So here is a Valentine’s Day haiku

  7. Winter Wonderland

    The snow has stopped and the final count here in Lawrence, KS is 14 inches.  Most of us have managed to shovel out of our homes and into the bank.  However, there could be changes to your local branch’s normal hours.  Before you bundle up and head to the bank, please call ahead to make sure we’re there.  If so, you’ll be rewarded with freshly baked cookies and warm coffee.  And if not, don’t worry- you can always access your account and funds 24/7 via online banking and ATM.

    Contact your local branch here.

    Stay Warm,

    Your Bankers
