Direct Bill Account
A Direct Bill account is another payment product option. A Direct Bill account is an account that allows you to receive collect calls from inmates/offenders and have the charges billed directly to you each month from Securus Correctional Billing Services. This account is a good option if the inmate is in for longer than 2 years or if you are an attorney, bail bondsmen, consulate, social worker or other small business or government agency. With verification or approved credit, you can receive an itemized monthly statement from Securus Correctional Billing Services for your calls.

This account offers you the following benefits:

  • Itemized monthly statement of call activity*
  • You can receive all the calls you need to, up to your credit limit
  • You can add multiple phone numbers to your account to ensure you receive all your calls
  • Calls will connect to cell phones (subject to facility restrictions)
  • Your phone line is open as long as the account balance is paid in full by the due date
  • Many quick, convenient ways to pay your bill
  • No minimum payment amount
  • You have 24/7/365 access to your account through our automated phone system and website

Please Contact Us to open a new Direct Bill account. If you have received notice that this account was opened automatically for you, you will want to set up access to manage your account online.
