The funds have to be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’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, and in this time the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit.
