Be aware. Stay secure.

Be aware of potential scammers attempting to impersonate or "spoof" authorities such as government or public health officials or agencies. Always exercise caution before engaging with someone seeking information from you.

  • Do not share your personal or sensitive information. People's United Bank will never make or send unsolicited calls, texts or emails asking you to provide, verify, or update passwords, usernames, debit/ATM card PINs or security codes, or account information such as Social Security number, Account Number, Card Number or other personal information.
  • Don’t always believe caller ID. Caller ID spoofing is easy to do, so fraudsters may try to impersonate or "spoof" authorities such as government or public health officials, agencies or even your bank.
  • Don’t click email attachments or URL links. Always inspect email and text senders carefully, and do not click on suspicious links or email attachments from unexpected emails, even if the sender looks like a company or person you recognize.
  • Set account alerts. Enroll in online account alerts to actively monitor your account activity and detect unusual activity. Customize alerts by transaction type or amount, and receive email or text notifications, or both. Learn how to set account alerts.
  • Enroll in Online Documents. Access your bank statement and other important forms and notices in one secure place, accessible only to you with secure sign-on at your convenience. Learn more.

COVID-19 Community Support

People’s United Bank and our charitable foundations have been closely monitoring ongoing developments of COVID-19, and its impact on our local communities. We are working diligently to ensure we remain a strong philanthropic partner and actively engage in discussions with our community and banking partners, and government officials, to understand the role of philanthropy in responding.

Targeting $3 million to COVID-19 Support

In response to the impact of COVID-19 on our communities, People’s United Bank and our two charitable foundations are actively providing support to COVID-19 relief efforts, with an anticipated target of collectively allocating more than $3 million in funding.

Support efforts include:

  • COVID-19 Relief Funds - Monetary support to collaborative COVID-19 Relief Funds, to address the impact COVID-19 is having on our communities as efficiently and effectively as possible.
  • Accelerating Grant Payments - Our Foundations are working to expedite grants to our nonprofit partners that are on the frontlines to help provide funding for their most urgent needs.
  • General Operating Support - For nonprofits applying to our Foundations, we are lifting programming and project restrictions. We are also converting previously awarded program funding to a general operating grant to address the most urgent needs and challenges.
  • Flexible Requirements - Foundation grantees will not be required to provide periodic pending progress updates. We will be flexible with deadlines for reports and other requirements to ease burdens on our grantees and allow for a more relevant and responsive approach to our grant-making process
  • Ongoing Support - We will continue to explore opportunities where we can have an effective impact in responding to the coronavirus to meet the needs of our communities as the situation evolves.
