Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide a bank-like account for inmate monies and for buying things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds by way of postal mail and will have to send money to this address and do so in accordance with the policies written below:

The money must 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. It is advisable to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, during which the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have appropriate prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and checks won’t be accepted for deposit so don’t send cash or checks.
