Overview

PeoplesSouth Bank was founded in 1973 with its headquarters in Colquitt, Georgia. PeoplesSouth Bank handles assets of $722 million and deposits totaling $644 million, classifying it as a medium-size bank. PeoplesSouth Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We ranked PeoplesSouth Bank at a 4.4 out of 5 stars, indicating that it is a great bank that you should seriously consider. PeoplesSouth Bank has a diverse array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, PeoplesSouth Bank offers an option without a monthly fee. Institutions that offer no-fee checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account are the best option for gaining the highest income from your deposits while having easy access to your funds.
