Frequently Asked Questions
- 1. What is the balance of X’s trust fund account?
We are not allowed to provide anyone with that information except the inmate or his/her case manager. The inmate is aware that he/she has to submit a Request to Staff form to receive information regarding his/her account.
- 2. Why doesn’t the court have all the court costs I paid while incarcerated?
Oklahoma County Community Corrections/Residential Services sends funds for court costs on a monthly basis to the Department of Corrections Administrative Office. The Department of Corrections Administrative Office send court cost funds to appropriate counties, quarterly. This process takes a little time, but should be on track soon.
- 3. How can my family member to be taken a private Doctor or Dentist?
The inmate must be Escorted Leave Eligible, must sign a notarized affidavit of financial responsibility, must schedule the appointment far enough in advance to allow ten (10) working days prior to the appointment so the date, time and place may be verified and the administration can review and approve the Escorted Leave pass.
- 4. My family member was on a specific medication prior to incarceration and the doctor has changed the medication.
The Department of Corrections has a formulary which offers the most cost effective therapeutic medication for any condition. Many times the drug is not the newest medication on the market, but it has been determined by the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee that it provides equivalent therapy.
- 5. Can I apply for my Social Security benefits prior to my release?
- The answer is no. Benefits cannot be received while incarcerated. The offender will have to be released to supervision or discharge his/her sentence in order to qualify for benefits. The Social Security Administration requires an in-person office visit and it normally takes anywhere from three (3) to four (4) months before the benefits are received.
