Advantages of Prepaid Option

  • As most cell phone companies do not allow billing for collect calls or operator assisted calls, friends and family may need to set up a prepaid collect account in order to receive calls from inmates.
  • If a block has been set up on your phone by the CLEC, or Local Exchange Carrier, you will have to set up such an account.
  • Prepaid Collect accounts helps in controlling how much you spend on communications with an inmate.

Cost of Prepaid Calls

  • The minimum amount for prepaid collect services is $15 and all charges will be deducted from this amount upon completion of the call. An automated operator will notify you of your account balance every time you accept a call.
  • You will also be required to pay an establishment fee, which is a onetime fee before setting up a prepaid account. This is in addition to the $15 minimum amount to be paid for setting up an account. However, this is to be paid only once and after setting up an account, there is no other establishment fee to be paid again and the amount in the balance can be topped up without any further charges.
  • Charges for calling per minute will also differ from facility to facility according to the location of the correctional institution. Rates are quoted by the operator when you accept your first call or simply contact Legacy’s Prepaid Collect Customer Service Department.

If your account balance has run low on funds, an inmate can still contact your number, but the length of their call will be determined by the remaining balance in the account. Upon a zero balance being reached, services will be interrupted until sufficient payment has been received. You will also be notified far in advance of this decreased balance in order to help you manage your account funds more accurately.

You can visit the Legacy Inmate Communications website and recharge the existing account or make a call to 888-PAY-4-FAM (888-729-4326) and provide the telephone number of the account.

Quote of the moment: “Don't let the opinions of the average man sway you. Dream, and he thinks you're crazy. Succeed, and he thinks you're lucky. Acquire wealth, and he thinks you're greedy. Pay no attention. He simply doesn't understand.” - Robert G. Allen Read
