Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was created to provide a bank-like account for inmate monies and for buying things not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may deposit money to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with 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 through the mail and will have to send the moneyh to this address and do so in accordance with the steps written below:

The deposit must be in a money order that is 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 kept for a 15-day holding period, in which the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and checks cannot be accepted for deposit so don’t send checks or cash.
