Available Payment Methods

There are a number of convenient payment methods available to you:

Traditional Collect account
With a Traditional Collect account, charges for collect calls you receive from inmates are included on your local telephone bill. With this option, you are assigned a 90-day rolling spending limit for your Traditional Collect account. Each time you accept a collect call from an inmate, the charges are deducted from your available spending limit, and we submit those charges to your local telephone company to add to your local telephone bill. If you reach or exceed your spending limit during any rolling 90-day period, your Traditional Collect account will be temporarily blocked from receiving additional inmate calls. As the charges roll off and your balance drops back below the 90-day rolling spending limit, your account will be unblocked and you will be able to accept additional inmate calls up to the spending limit.

If you regularly need to receive more calls than your spending limit allows, you can open a prepaid AdvanceConnect account to continue receiving calls. If your line is blocked because you have exceeded your spending limit, you may click here or call Securus Correctional Billing Services to open a prepaid AdvanceConnect account.
