In order to serve the varied needs of our customers, we offer special services.  These services have been tailored to meet specific needs. As customers needs change, and new technologies are made available, this list will grow.

Debit Cards
Available with all checking accounts. There is no charge to have a debit card and no charge to use a debit card at either The Peoples Bank’s ATMs or for purchases at participating merchants. However, if you use your debit card as an ATM at another bank’s machine, there is still the $1.00 withdrawal fee and the $.50 fee for an inquiry and applicable surcharges are assessed.

Telephone Banking
Available free to all customers of The Peoples Bank. This system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All you have to do is dial 706-485-1143.
