Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide inmates a bank type account for prisoner money and for buying things not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add money to inmate’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates money in postal mail and must send money to the following address and follow the rules listed below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order that is made out to the prisoner’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 held for a 15-day hold, and during this hold period the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that don’t have valid prisoner information if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Checks and cash won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send checks or cash.
