Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit funds to prisoner’s accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money in postal mail and must send it to the address below and do so in accordance with the directions shows below:

The money must be a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, and in this time the inmate will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have appropriate inmate info provided the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be accepted for deposit so do not send checks or cash.
