Skip-A-Payment (credit card)
Credit card customers of The Peoples Community Bank who have not been past due two or more times in the past twelve months are eligible to skip-a-payment* in May. This means that you have no required minimum payment and will not be considered past due with the credit bureaus. Finance (interest) charges will continue to accrue.
Safe Deposit Boxes
Customers with safe deposit boxes can access their boxes during normal business hours. We recommend calling ahead to make an appointment and ask that customers wear a mask and gloves. If you do not have a mask and gloves we can provide them.
If you find yourself in a challenging financial situation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, don't hesitate to reach out to us. Our staff is ready and willing to provide assistance where we can. Contact your lender or personal banker to learn about your options, including the suspension of late fees on loans, loan payment extensions and other forms of loan relief.
