Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that was created to provide inmates a bank account for prisoner money and for buying items not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners money in the mail and must send it to this address and do so in accordance with the policies written below:

The funds have to be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, and during this hold period the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that do not have appropriate prisoner information but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and checks can’t be deposited so don’t send cash or checks.
