  2. Online Banking Notice

    We will be doing required website maintenance tonight (June 22). You may experience some slight online banking service interruption for a very brief period.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

  3. New York Debit Card Alert!

    Because of recent fraudulent debit card activity in the state of New York, Peoples Bank debit cards signature transactions are temporarily not allowed in that state. This means you cannot “sign” for your purchases. Simply enter your PIN number at the point of sale. Regular ATM transactions are not affected by this restriction. We will keep you updated.

    Thanks for banking with us!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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 »
