Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate monies and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds to prisoner’s Commissary 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 inmates funds through postal mail and must send money to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps shows below:

The deposit have to be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and during this hold period the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that do not have valid inmate information provided the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Checks and cash can’t be accepted so don’t send any cash or checks.
