Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank account for prisoner funds and for buying items not issued by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit funds to these Commissary accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners money in postal mail and will have to send the moneyh to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps listed below:

The money have to 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that don’t have correct prisoner information if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and checks cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
