Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank type account for inmate monies and for purchasing things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add money into these accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners money through the postal service and have to send the moneyh to this address and follow the rules provided below:

The deposit must be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, in which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Cash and checks will not be accepted for deposit so don’t send any checks or cash.
