Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate funds and for buying things not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may send funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates money by way of the mail and will have to send the moneyh to this address and follow the directions shows below:

The funds have to be in a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day holding period, and during this hold period the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have valid inmate info if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted so don’t send checks or cash.
