How to Save on Federal Prison Prepaid Collect Calls

The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) extends telephone privileges to federal inmates to help them maintain ties with their families and other community contacts. Ordinarily, the inmate pays for the calls; but in some cases the receiving party pays. Limitations and conditions may be imposed upon an inmate's telephone privileges to ensure they are consistent with the BOP's correctional management responsibilities. A notice is posted next to each telephone advising inmates that calls are monitored. Unmonitored calls to attorneys are permitted in certain circumstances. Third-party or other alternative call arrangements are not permitted; this ensures inmates do not have the opportunity to use phones for criminal or other inappropriate purposes.

There are 3 ways to receive calls from an inmate at a Federal Prison. The least expensive way is the Debit Call.

  • Collect Call (billed to your phone bill)
  • Prepay Collect Call (prepaid account with Value Added Communications)
  • Debit Call (Inmate purchases phone cards)

The collect and prepay rates vary by location. The debit call rates are standardized and are the least expensive. Local debit calls (calls from a federal inmate to a local number) are billed at .06 per minute (.90 for a 15-minute call). Long distance debit calls (calls to any number in the U.S. other than a local number) are billed at .23 per minute ($3.45 for a 15-minute call).

Most federal prisons limit federal inmates to 300 minutes per month of phone calls (400 in November and December). At the local calling rate of .06 per minute, those 300 minutes would cost $18 per month. At the long distance rate of .23 per minute, those same 300 minutes would cost $69 per month. Having a local number for the inmate to call home would save $51 a month on the cost of 300 minutes worth of phone calls.
