Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was created to provide an account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds in the postal service and have to send it to this address and follow the policies given below:

The deposit have to be 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 subject to a 15-day hold, during which the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have correct inmate info if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Checks and cash will not be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send any cash or checks.
