Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide a bank type account for prisoner money and for buying things not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add money to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates funds through the mail and will have to send funds to this address and follow the directions shows below:

The deposit must be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, during which the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that do not have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send any checks or cash.
