Peoples National Bank first started operating in 1909 and is headquartered in Mount Vernon, Illinois. It owns $1 billion in assets and $1 billion in deposits, making it a medium-size bank. Peoples National Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. With an average 3.9 stars out of 5, Peoples National Bank proves it is a good bank that should be given a look. Peoples National Bank has the full slate of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking does not have a monthly maintenance fee. Finding an institution with no-fee checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account is the best bet for getting the most income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.
