Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that was created to provide a bank account for prisoner funds and for buying items not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can send money to inmate’s Commissary accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds in the postal service and will have to send those funds to the address below and follow the steps provided 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. It is advisable to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and during this period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have appropriate inmate info if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
