Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide inmates a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit funds into these accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds through postal mail and will have to send funds to the address below and follow the rules shows below:

The funds must be in the form of 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 post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, and in this time the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that do not have appropriate inmate info if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Checks and cash won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
