Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary which was created to provide an account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates funds in the mail and will have to send money to the following address and do so in accordance with the rules written below:

The money have to be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, and during this period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that do not have correct inmate information if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send cash or checks.
