Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide prisoners a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for buying things not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds to inmate’s Commissary accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds through the postal service and have to send the moneyh to the address below and do so in accordance with the steps provided below:

The money must be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’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 processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and during this period the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have correct inmate info but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send checks or cash.
