Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank type account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates funds by way of postal mail and must send the moneyh to the following address and follow the steps provided below:

The funds must be a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a U.S. Postal Service 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 period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that do not have correct inmate information but only if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Personal checks and cash will not be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any cash or checks.
