Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add money to these accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money through the mail and must send those funds to the following address and follow the policies written below:

The funds have to be a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, during which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have valid inmate information provided the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and checks won’t be accepted so don’t send checks or cash.
