Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was created to provide a bank account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add money to these accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send inmates funds in postal mail and will have to send those funds to this address and follow the rules written below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a postal 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 inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that do not have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send any cash or checks.
