Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was started to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate funds and for buying things not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may send funds to inmate’s accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners money through postal mail and have to send the moneyh to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps listed below:

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