Default Money Gram's Receive Code

I did the J Pay route for June, no problems except expensive. Thought I would try the Money Gram from WalMart for July. I picked up the form at WalMart ahead to make out before I go.

I see the Money Gram's Receive Code according to the DOC site shared with us by Sass for Kentucky is 1232,

My question is - Is the Receive Code the same as the Registration Number on the form? I see no wording Recceive Code. This is the only place I see it could go.

The one nice thing about J Pay, at least at GRCC, they already have a kiosk there for the inmates and they can tell immediately that they have received the amount through J Pay. They no longer have to wait for inmate accounts to notify them. I am hoping the same will hold true for the Money Gram. Just thought I would try it.

Thank you.

Did you get the blue ExpressPayment form? According to the Money Gram info on the JPay site, that's the form to use and yes it does have a Receive Code section on it.

This page has the details and a picture of the form.

I got the Money Gram Money Transfer form. It does not say Express Payment, so I guess I got the wrong form. I will go back and get the one that says Express Payment. Thanks for getting back to me in a timely manner.

I do Money Gram on line. The account number is the inmate number plus the last name. I've never done the paper form so I really can't say. I pay an extra 6 dollar fee but it goes into my LO's account within minutes.

You're very welcome.

After several years of working in retail and dealing with Western Union forms, I figured you may have had the wrong form.

sass - I picked up the correct form Monday. It is the exact replica you have on your post. No questions on this end. Thanks again everyone.
