Load inmate's remaining account funds on a debit card upon release
Upon release, jail facilities turn over the inmate’s account balance to the inmate
by preparing a facility check. Jail manpower is required to prepare the check and
to keep track of the many un-cashed checks as part of the monthly bank account reconciliation.
Many checks are never cashed either because of the small amount of the check or
the fact that the check has the jail logo on it. Under many State escheat laws,
any un-claimed funds are turned over to the State government. This process puts
a tremendous manpower burden on all levels of your jail.
EZ’s solution is to offer your jail the ability to load inmate account funds onto
a pin based debit card. Upon leaving the jail, the inmate’s remaining funds in his
account will be transferred to a card by a jail staff person using our web based
interface. At the end of the day, jail personnel will be able to view and print
out a summary of the funds loaded for that day. The card holder can access his funds
via any of the over 900,000 ATM’s located in the US or via a pin based POS (point
of sale) transaction in a retail establishment.
EZ can supply jail ATM services so inmates have access
to money immediately after being released with EZ's exit card.
