Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide inmates an account for inmate monies and for buying things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may send funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates money through the postal service and must send it to this address and follow the directions given below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have appropriate prisoner info if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited so don’t send any checks or cash.
