Founded in 1916, Peoples Bank SB has assets totaling $925 million as well as deposits totaling $793 million, ranking it as a medium-size bank. Peoples Bank SB, whose headquarters are in Munster, Indiana, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We gave the bank a 4 stars out of 5, which means Peoples Bank SB is a respectable bank that you should consider. Peoples Bank SB offers a varied choice of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Peoples Bank SB has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Peoples Bank SB's standard checking does not have a monthly maintenance charge. Institutions that offer free checking and a high interest rate savings account are the best option for accruing the most income on your deposits alongside easy access to your money.
