Inmate Financial Transactions

Inmates may receive funds for their use in the prison canteen, etc. from immediate family members on their visiting list, their attorney, and one approved non-family member (with certain restrictions).  
Not on an approved visiting list? Click here to apply. 
To make an online deposit: 
Approved individuals may place money in an inmate’s trust account through the online Inmate Trust Account Deposit service here. There is a $250 limit for transactions. No proceeds benefit the state of Montana or the Montana Department of Corrections. 
When creating your account in the online Inmate Trust Account Deposit service, confirm that the name you enter matches the name on your visitation application exactly.  For example, if you used a middle initial on your application, include the initial in your Inmate Trust account.  If your name does not match exactly, the system will not accept your payment.
Creating an account will require the last four digits of the user’s Social Security number. 
For assistance call (406) 444-4234.
