Important Merger Updates

We’re excited to share the great news that bank regulators have approved the merger of A.J. Smith Federal Savings Bank with Peoples Bank, and the merger took place on January 24, 2019. A.J. Smith has since joined Peoples, adding the two former A.J. Smith offices in Orland Park and one office in Midlothian, Illinois to our Banking Center network to better serve you. We are excited by the opportunity to more fully serve the community and offer even more convenience to our customers throughout our footprint.

The new locations are now functional and open for business as Peoples’ Banking Centers, offering our full menu of traditional and electronic products and services. You now have access to 22 conveniently located Banking Centers throughout South Suburban Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana. Additionally, you have access to 55,000 surcharge free ATMs through the Allpoint Network.

At Peoples Bank, our mission is to help our customers and communities be more successful. Our commitment to You First Banking is our promise to provide you with an exceptional banking experience and personal value to help you meet your ever-changing financial needs.

The banking relationship we share with you is important to us. We value your business, and we look forward to continuing to serve you at our newest locations. Visit our website at for merger updates as more information becomes available.
