Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit money to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money in the mail and have to send the moneyh to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies provided below:

The funds must be in a money order 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 holding period, during which the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have valid inmate information if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Cash and personal checks will not be deposited so do not send checks or cash.
