Default Huntsville Commissary Accounts

Hi all, we have a relative who has just been transferred from county jail to the Holliday Unit at Huntsville prison. He still has money at county, but they expect it will take 2 - 3 weeks to transfer to his new location, so we need to get some to him.

Funds were easy to transfer to him at county, but we tried to find a way to quickly transfer money to him at Huntsville and the process looks a lot more complicated, like he has to add us to a list and establish a trust fund, and then we can transfer the money to him?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

The rules changed recently and he does have to have the individual listed either on visitation or his phone list in order to send him money. The Ecomm website is the the easiest and least expensive way to send funds. That is also the site to send him ecomms or commissary. The spend periods start every quarter. If he was transfered recently he won't be eligible to receive until the new quarter start Jan 1, 2021 because he came in after the quarter started, Oct 1st. But you can still send funds to his account.

Geez, that does sound complicated. Thanks so much for taking the time to answer, dtmom, hadn't heard of ecomm and had no idea about the quarter situation.

Your welcome, I know it all seems foreign. I guess it is when you first get started!😣 Feel free to ask any questions. The TDCJ website has a lot of info, I had to read and ask questions too. You're not alone is this quagmire.

Join the Texas Inmate Support on FB. The individual units also have support groups, once he gets settled in.
