Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners a bank type account for inmate monies and for buying items not issued regularly by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may send funds into these accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates money through postal mail and must send money to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies shows below:

The deposit have to be a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, and during this hold period the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that don’t have correct prisoner information provided the envelope has a return address. Checks and cash cannot be accepted for deposit so don’t send cash or checks.
