How to send money to a Marion County inmate

US Mail

You can send up to $200 through JPAY on any given day and up to $400 per month by mailing a Money Order Deposit form and money order to JPAY's lockbox in Hollywood, FL. With your money order, you should include a copy of your passport, driver's license, or state ID (your name should match the name on the money order exactly). The birth date on your identification also must match the birth date and name you used when you registered as a DRC visitor.

If you want to send more than $200, you must get approval from Warden Leon Hill in advance of sending the money. Keep in mind, letters may not accompany the money order.


You can use a debit card or credit card through the ConnectNetwork website to deposit money into the inmate's personal trust account.


It is also possible to deposit money into an inmate's account by calling 1-888-988-4768 (4PMT) using Site ID 86. Just be aware that while the number is toll-free, you will have to pay a transaction fee to send money over the phone.
