Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide prisoners a bank type account for prisoner money and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may deposit money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds through postal mail and have to send the moneyh to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies written below:

The deposit have to be in the form of a money order 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 placed on a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that do not have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and checks cannot be deposited so don’t send any cash or checks.
