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