Debit Link

A Debit Link account is an inmate account that allows inmates to buy various non-phone products and services (i.e. MP3 players, music, games, etc.) available at their facilities.

Rather than using dollars and cents, the Debit Link account uses a form of currency called link units to enable inmates to pay for these services at the facility.


  • Provides inmates with the convenience of paying for a variety of products using a single account.
  • Eliminates the need for an inmate to make specific product or service selections when requesting funds.
  • Link units remain available until spent. Inmates have the flexibility to decide when to spend them and on what products.

How It Works

With correctional facility approval at facilities that offer the service, you can fund a Debit Link account through your ConnectNetwork account online. There, you can purchase link units for an inmate, which he/she can then use to make purchases available at the facility.

What It Costs

Link units cost a penny: $1 buys 100 link units.

Ways to Pay

Making a deposit online is the easiest and fastest way to make a deposit into an inmate’s account to fund link unit purchases.
