Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners an account for inmate monies and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money into these Commissary accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds in the mail and will have to send funds to the address below and follow the rules written below:

The funds have to be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and during this period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that do not have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
