The Access Corrections website allows users to send funds or messages to inmates in the American prison system. The website offers security and privacy in money transfers and one-way email messages.
Through Access Corrections, users can make inmate deposits or probation and parole payments. To make such payments, users create an account with the website. To register an account, users must submit their personal details like their address, email address, phone number and birthday. Then, they must agree to the terms and conditions outlined by the website. Once they have accessed their accounts using their email address and password, users can find state-specific money order forms that they can fill out and submit to make inmate payments. The forms vary depending on the state regulations.
The website also offers frequent updates to state-specific regulations regarding inmate funds deposits and messages. Additionally, the site stays up to date with state Departments of Corrections fees and restrictions. Not all state DOCs are available for Access Corrections services. The website, however, informs users when new state departments utilize Access Corrections and when new forms or rules are put in place. The website is completely secure, claims Access Corrections, and the home page is available in English and Spanish.
