Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates a bank-like account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued regularly by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may add money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates money by way of postal mail and will have to send money to this address and follow the directions shows below:

The deposit have to be in a money order made out to the inmate’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 held for a 15-day holding period, in which the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that don’t have valid prisoner information provided the envelope has a return address. Personal checks and cash will not be deposited so don’t send cash or checks.
