Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was started to provide prisoners a bank-like account for prisoner money and for buying items not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may add funds into these Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds in the postal service and have to send those funds to this address and do so in accordance with the policies shows below:

The funds have to be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should 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 period, and during this hold period the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that don’t have valid prisoner info provided the envelope has a valid return address. Checks and cash cannot be deposited so don’t send cash or checks.
