About Us

Your People. Your Community. Your Bank. 

At our core, the priority has always been community. We believe that if we all have a goal in mind, we can achieve anything. Think of us as an extension of your household that you can grow with and build a better future together.

Peoples Security Bank & Trust has become one of the largest independent community banks in eastern Pennsylvania with a footprint stretching through Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. We currently operate 28 full-service offices that each have a team devoted to the community in which they live and work. Each office offers a wide range of financial services that covers personal banking, business banking, and home financing.

We are people you can count on. We are part of your community that wants to see it prosper. And we are your bank that can be trusted to be your financial partner.


Community is our Past, Present, and Future

We started out in a small Susquehanna County town called Hallstead, Pennsylvania. When the people in Hallstead realized they needed a place to gather and keep their money safe, they built a bank that was for the community. In 1905 the First National Bank of Hallstead opened its doors. Over the years, we expanded into all regions of Northeastern Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley and Greater Delaware Valley.

Within the last several years, we have added the Greater Pittsburgh Region and the state of New Jersey to our service area. These two recent establishments is an indicator of our commitment to the customer and how we can better serve our communities.

We are always optimistic on what the future may hold and will strive to go beyond our customers’ expectations. Since the beginning, our mission and values have remained constant. We believe we are for the people. We are for the growth of our employees. And we are for the benefit of our community.
