I do prison ministry in Texas, and one extremely hot topic these days is whether prison inmates qualify to receive the $1,200 stimulus checks sent out by the government half a year ago. For inmates, such a sum of money is immense beyond words in prison, and I have been asked to help out.
A California federal judge ruled, days ago, that inmates do qualify for the payments. However, most inmates don’t have Internet access or means to fill out forms. Am I committing some violation if I enter Social Security numbers or personal data on websites on their behalf? (as one has requested)
