Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide prisoners an account for inmate money and for buying items not issued by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add funds to prisoner’s accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds in the mail and must send the moneyh to this address and follow the policies provided below:

The deposit must be in 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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and during this period the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send checks or cash.
