Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was started to provide inmates a bank account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit funds into these accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money in postal mail and must send funds to this address and do so in accordance with the rules provided below:

The money have to be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, in which the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that don’t have valid prisoner information if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited so do not send checks or cash.
