Overview

PeoplesSouth Bank first started operating in 1973 with headquarters located in Colquitt, Georgia. PeoplesSouth Bank manages $722 million in assets and deposits totaling $644 million, making it a medium-size bank. PeoplesSouth Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Overall, PeoplesSouth Bank is a great bank that you should seriously consider, with a rating of 4.4 stars out of 5 from the SmartAsset experts. PeoplesSouth Bank provides customers with a variety of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. PeoplesSouth Bank has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, the bank's standard checking does not have a monthly maintenance charge. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best bet for returning the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

PeoplesSouth Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
