Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that serves to provide an account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit funds to these Commissary accounts by sending it by 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 in postal mail and will have to send money to the address below and follow the rules provided below:

The deposit must 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 U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that do not have valid inmate information if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.

ACT is a program that helps the offender to evaluate and recognize behavioral flaws that lead to their criminal behavior. During the program, the offender is encouraged to take responsibility and develop empathy on the affects of the incarceration on their family members. This program gives the offender the opportunity to repair damaged relationships and to increase family ties. During the program the offender and the family member will work on an acceptable plan that will help the offender transition from prison to the family unit.
Associate Aide Program was developed to assist individuals on the mental health caseload with memory or some other form of cognitive deficit that impairs an offender’s ability to function within the facility. The Aides are responsible for providing reminders to help with the impaired offender’s adjustment. Because of Hocking Correctional Facility’s unique mission of managing the aging offender, the Associate Aide Program has become an integral part of delivering a continuum o appropriate care.
