Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was started to provide an account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

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

The money must be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’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, and during this period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that do not have valid prisoner information if the envelope has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send checks or cash.
