  • Free-For-All Checking: Free-For-All Checking means exactly that. No maintenance fees and no charge for online banking or MoneyPass/Allpoint ATMs. You can link your Free-For-All account to another PeoplesBank account for overdraft protection. This checking account is a great option for students and young people starting out with their first checking account in PA or MD. It’s also a good choice if you currently have only a small amount that you wish to keep in checking.
  • PrimeTime Checking: Let your money work for you with a PrimeTime account, which features a variable interest rate that’s compounded and credited monthly. This account does require a $300 minimum balance to avoid a $3 monthly maintenance fee, and one accountholder must be at least 50 years of age. It’s a great account for people looking to build retirement savings while enjoying easy checking and for those who are able to keep a little bit of a higher balance in their checking account.
