Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which was created to provide an account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners funds in the postal service and must send those funds to this address and follow the policies shows below:

The money must be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, during which the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have correct prisoner information but only if the envelope has a valid return address. Checks and cash will not be deposited so don’t send cash or checks.
