Default Post federal prison Visa card

Does anyone know where the Visa Card the BOP gives inmates can be used or cashed. Tried several ATMs and it won’t work there. There no bank account for deposit yet.

I know you can use it as credit. Maybe try calling to get a new PIN to make a withdrawal?

Good suggestion. You have to call to get the real pin.

From what I hear, it's like a Visa gift card. you can use it to buy stuff. anywhere takes Visa credit /debit card will take it.

there could be a fee to cash it.

Walmart? I know we used to cash a lot out there. Warning-some cards charge just for an inquiry on what's available.
