Community Involvement

People’s United Bank invests in the financial health and well-being of our neighbors through several key community outreach programs.

Employee volunteerism

For people, through people

Each year, People’s United Bank employees dedicate countless hours volunteering their time to create a lasting impact. From serving on boards, teaching financial education classes, and participating in fundraising events, our employees are consistently giving back to our communities.

Financial education

Free, professional, age-appropriate financial literacy

As a leader in financial services, it’s only natural for us to invest in the financial health and well-being of our neighbors. We conduct free, age-appropriate financial education workshops at schools, nonprofit organizations, and in collaboration with other community groups similarly interested in assisting children, teens, young adults, adults and seniors on a range of financial topics. It’s just one way we’re committed to helping build financial literacy, financial stability and relationships to improve economic conditions in entire communities.

Fraud prevention

Protecting our older adults

For over 20 years, People's United Bank has actively sought to safeguard older adults from identity theft, scams, and financial exploitation. Through educational resources, seminars, events and training, we collaborate with law enforcement, senior advocacy agencies and other community groups to promote financial awareness and safety for older adults, as well as senior sensitivity training to heighten awareness to specific needs of the aging population.

AARP Fraud Prevention Partnership

In collaboration with the AARP Fraud Watch Network, we’re working to help combat a growing epidemic of fraud and financial abuse. Through our partnership, we have been providing customers and the general public with educational information and resources through print, digital, in-person, and online sources, including:

  • Print: Pick up a copy of the AARP Watch Dog Alert handbooks outlining 13 ways con artists steal your money, at a branch near you.
  • In-person: Check back to find a Fraud Prevention Seminar at a branch near you.
  • Online: Visit our AARP partnership page for more information and resources on fraud prevention.
