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.

  1. Pamela says:

    What are the requirements for an inmate to be eligible for the halfway house? Are the case managers there to help inmates reintegrate? Case managers are suppose to be advocates for the inmates and help with resources so they can get out, why are some case managers not responding to certain needs for inmates? There are many inmates that are institutionalized and find it easier for them to be incarcerated where as there few that want to be out in the community to find a job and help support their family and watch their children grow. With my experience with my husband at BCCF I don’t see anyone trying to help him to get the answers he deserves. How can I help him find the resources to get his questions answered????

    • Amy says:

      Hi Pam,
      I have the same questions that you do. My man’s case manager doesn’t respond to requests for an appt either. He is doing all he can to be able to come home and can’t get a response from case manager to ask questions and find out what’s going on and exactly what he needs to do to progress so he can come home. If anyone has any information on how to get answers to the questions Pam has asked that would be very helpful as I would also like answers. Thanks!

    • Kitti Kat says:

      I know they can’t have any other pending cases anywhere else, nor can they have a detainer. Remember that the beds for halfway houses are scarce and they like to take forever to give a response. If your husband hasn’t heard anything after a month from when he put in, then tell him to talk to his case manager. My fiancee is in the same position and is waiting to hear back. I think he also said something about you can only put in for it once every 6 months or something like that, so tell your husband that, too, in case there was some paperwork issue that’s been taken care of already. Good luck!!

  2. Tammy B says:

    My husband is in your facility now and he is getting the run around about everything. He wants to start doing classes to help him and he is he told he had to wait but yet there had been a few guys that got there the same time as him and they are starting there classes. And his case manager acts like she don’t want to help him. He is a good person and honest. He is in there on false statements and he is getting looked at like he is a bad person and that is not right..

  3. Tammy says:

    I want to know why case managers do not help there inmates they are sighn too them. Every time my husband goes to see his case manager. And he ask her questions she always tells him I don’t know I’ll have too look and see. But then never gets the info for him.. she don’t even fill him in on how he is doing it nothing it’s like she don’t care. This prison don’t even care if inmates harass other inmates. The guards don’t care..
