If you were released after November 6, 2022, you were provided in your release packet an informational card on how to get a refund of any remaining debit account funds. Attached are copies of the informational cards at WesternUnionRefundEnglish.pdf

If you were released before November 7, 2022, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Refunds can be requested from inmate's debit accounts 30 days or later following release. If requests are received prior to 30 days of release, they will not be processed, and must be resubmitted no sooner than 30 days after your release date.
