Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners an account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds into these Commissary accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates funds through postal mail and will have to send funds to the address below and follow the policies provided below:

The money must be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, and during this hold period the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have valid prisoner information provided the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Cash and checks won’t be accepted so don’t send any cash or checks.
