Moving is stressful.
Besides a new home to get used to, many moves include new jobs and plenty of new addresses to remember — maybe even a journey into another state, one in which many of your friendly neighborhood stores, retailers, and restaurants may not operate.
On top of that, you’ve got a lengthy list of “must-do-nows,” which include setting up your new utilities, getting the kids enrolled in school, forwarding your mail, filling the fridge, and, yes, making sure you still have access to your money.
At Peoples Bank, we are here to help you make your next move as easy as possible. And, whether we are a physical part of your new community or not, you can still bank with Peoples Bank.
Does Peoples Bank have a location near your new home?
If so, you are good to go. Besides updating us with your new contact info and mailing address, you can still bank the same way you always have.
What if Peoples Bank does not have a location near me?
Don’t sweat it. No matter what stage of life you're in - moving away, off to college, getting married - you can still bank with Peoples Bank!
