Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was started to provide inmates an account for inmate monies and for buying things not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may send money to these Commissary accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds by way of postal mail and will have to send funds to the address below and follow the steps shows below:

The funds must be in 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, in which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have valid inmate info but only if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Checks and cash cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send cash or checks.

    We visited my brother this past weekend. Facility seemed clean and personnel was strict, but courteous to my parents and I. Thankful for our visit.

    Would love to help my brother get further education while he is serving his time. If anyone can advise as to how I could help in this area, please send email to sbellamy@clearwire.net.
