Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may send funds to these Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send inmates funds by way of postal mail and have to send money to the following address and follow the rules provided below:

The money must be a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, in which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that do not have appropriate inmate information but only if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Checks and cash won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any checks or cash.
