Our Difference

Welcome!  I'm so glad you're here!

I’m often asked what’s different about Peoples Bank; and my answer: we're "Of Kankakee County." 

"Of Kankakee County" means that when you work with one of our bankers, you're working  with someone who lives, works, and plays in your same community.  We're here for you in person, online, and over the phone - however you wish to do your banking.  "Of Kankakee County" means that we're supporting our community by sponsoring youth sports teams, neighborhood concerts in the park, and local scholarships. 

Founded in 1962 by my grandfather, Romy Hammes, Peoples Bank remains a family owned business providing unmatched personalized service.  We listen first, speak plainly, and offer solid financial solutions.  We're there with a helping hand (and a smile) every step of the way.

Thank you for visiting our website.  I promise Peoples Bank will make your banking experience the best it can be!

All best,

Jeff Hammes
