Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide a bank account for inmate monies and for buying things not issued by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds into these 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 by way of the mail and must send the moneyh to the following address and follow the directions listed below:

The deposit must be in a money order that is 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 kept for a 15-day holding period, and during this hold period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have appropriate inmate information if the envelope has a return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be deposited so do not send any checks or cash.
