Through the years, The Peoples State Bank has been a reliable source of funds for the growing agricultural and commercial community. More recently, the bank has established itself as a leader in the most modern financial services available in the area.
Witness to this leadership are the current offerings of local ATMs, debit cards (Peoples MasterMoney), telephone banking (Peoples Voice), online and Mobile banking (Peoples Express and One Click banking), and the local source of internet connectivity (Peoples Net). Insurance, Trust and Investment services are also available for individuals, families and businesses, preparing for whatever life brings. These services are complemented by a full menu of loan products, including fixed rate home loans, home equity loans, business loans, commercial, agricultural and consumer loans.
In 2017 it became apparent that Peoples State Bank was outgrowing its main bank. A full remodel and restoration of the second floor, previously used as storage, kicked off that Fall. The project was completed in 2018 and created new office space for Peoples Wealth Management, Peoples Insurance Services, Peoples State Bank Trust Department and more.
During the same period, Peoples State Bank grew outwardly with the acquisition of three branch locations in Greenville, Salem and Vandalia, Illinois. By welcoming these customers, employees and communities to the PSB family, the bank was able to invest in contiguous markets, bringing new customers the outstanding personalized service and commitment to community banking that existing customers have come to expect.
Current directors include Tony Arndt, John M. Dougherty, Anthony Griffith, Ed Webb, Gregory Ikemire, Paul B. Finley, Stacy Moore and Brett Lessley.
In the mega-banking era of the 21st century, it is the mission of The Peoples State Bank to provide growth and stability to all the communities we serve. The Peoples State Bank is a “true” locally owned community bank, whose earnings are redirected back into Jasper, Lawrence, Fayette, Bond and Marion counties. We consider it a privilege to have served in community banking for more than 140 years, and we pledge the same quality of service for many years to come.
