In previous years, placing and receiving calls from a correctional facility was an complicated and expensive ordeal. Securus has designed a variety of calling plans that are specifically intended for incarcerated friends and loved ones.
Securus currently offers a variety of calling plans so that inmates can communicate with outsiders when necessary. Advance Connect has become a popular calling plan which is quite easy to use. Advance Connect allows inmates to make calls by using a prepaid calling card set up through Securus. Each time a call is placed the charge is deducted from the prepaid calling card balance. This calling plan is probably the most popular due to the fact that it enables the person to keep better track of their spending. This account must be funded with a minimum of $50.00.
Direct Bill is an account set up through Securus Billing Department. Inmates can place calls when necessary. Therefore, each month the facility will receive a printed bill which must be paid within 14 days. The inmate and or their family must pay the bill each and every month or service will be discontinued. Special calling rates are available for inmates. Calls placed can hook up directly to almost any cell phone.
Traditional Collect is another telephone account available through Securus Technologies. Inmates can place collect calls to a specific number. The person accepting the collect call will be responsible for the charges on their monthly telephone bill. Once a person accepts a collect call from an inmate, the Traditional Collect account is automatically set up. Therefore, there is little to no paperwork involved in setting up this calling account. The telephone number is used as the account number. Essentially, you will be billed by your local telephone company each month.
Inmate Debit is probably one of the most popular calling plans now being used by inmates. Inmate Debit is a prepaid calling account in which funds can be added at virtually any time. As long as the account has available funds then calls can be placed from the correctional facility. Inmate Debit has become popular due to the fact that it enables the inmate to keep track of their spending habits. This account must be funded with a minimum of $50.00. Calls made when using the Inmate Debit plan will permit calls to directly connect to any cellular number.
