The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) is proposing changes to the operation of inmate trust fund accounts. The new rule would automatically apply 75% of money received from family members or other outside sources towards restitution, court costs, child support, or other obligations. That means if your loved one has court-ordered financial obligations that have not been met, and you send them $100, only $25 will be deposited in their account. More info.
There is a 60-day comment period, open through March 13, during which individuals and organizations are invited to respond to BOP’s proposed rule.
