Electronic Payments: Funds up to $5,000 may be sent to inmates via the following methods.

    * JPAY at www.jpay.com
    * Money Gram locations using the Blue Money Gram Express Payment Form -  receiving code is 7364
    * Western Union at www.westernunion.com or at locations using the Quick Collect Form – code city and state are ILDOC  IL

For all electronic transfer of funds, the inmate IDOC number and incarcerated last name must be used. Funds are anticipated to be applied to the inmate’s account within 24 - 48 business hours. Funds sent during an inmate transfer between facilities may take longer than 24 – 48 business hours.
