Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners an account for inmate monies and for buying items not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can send funds into these 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 in the postal service and will have to send it to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies listed below:

The funds have to be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to 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 holding period, in which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that do not have correct prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and checks cannot be accepted so do not send any cash or checks.
