Overview

Started in 1896, The Peoples Bank has $647 million in assets as well as deposits totaling $530 million, classifying the institution as a medium-size bank. The Peoples Bank, whose headquarters are in Biloxi, Mississippi, 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. With a score of 4.1 out of 5 stars, The Peoples Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. The Peoples Bank provides customers with multiple banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, IRAs and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking account does not carry a monthly maintenance fee. Banks that offer no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account are your best option for returning the highest income on your deposits alongside easy access to your money.
