Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate money and for buying things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may deposit funds into these accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds through the mail and have to send those funds to the following address and follow the rules given below:

The money have to be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’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 processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, during which the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have correct prisoner info if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Checks and cash can’t be accepted so don’t send checks or cash.
