Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate monies and for purchasing things not issued by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add funds to these Commissary accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates money by way of the mail and must send those funds to the address below and do so in accordance with the steps provided below:

The money have to be in a money order made out to the prisoner’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 processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, during which the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Checks and cash cannot be accepted for deposit so do not send checks or cash.
