Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may send funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds through the postal service and have to send money to the address below and follow the directions provided below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order that is 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 placed on a 15-day hold period, and during this hold period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited so do not send any cash or checks.
