The Bank of American Fork recently received a first-ever award from the Utah Division of Aging and Adult Services for creating a culture, products and services that protect seniors.
"Bank of American Fork is blazing a trail in Utah and throughout the nation as a leader in creating an age-friendly culture," said Jilenne Gunther, legal services developer for the division, who has been recruited by AARP to help it implement age-friendly banking practices on a national level. "The products the bank has designed for seniors help prevent financial exploitation and create an environment where they can come and receive top-notch customer service. In doing so, Bank of American Fork continues to stand by its commitment to serve the most vulnerable members of our community."
The Bank of American Fork was established in 1913 and is part of the People's Utah Bancorp group. People's group of banks has 18 locations from Cache Valley to St. George and more than $1.3 billion in assets.
