Home Equity Loans home equity

Your home could be loaded with cash.  You can access that cash through a Peoples Home Equity Credit Line.  This can open the door for you to attain flexible budgeting with the financial resource that you live in.  The difference between the appraised value of your home, and the amount owed to others, is your equity.  Check writing capability comes with this account.  Monthly payments are based on the current balance, not the amount of the credit line that we may have approved for you.  Tax savings may also occur due to potential deductibility of interest.  Consult your tax advisor for details.

Credit Cards credit cards

The Peoples Bank is proud to be able to offer our customers the opportunity to carry the Visa Classic card or the Visa Gold credit card.  Applications are available in our Branch offices.  Credit cards can be an excellent way to ensure financial flexibility to fund vacations, as well as a number of other periodic purchases so that the cost can be spread out over months instead of requiring immediate expenditures.
