Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide inmates an account for inmate money and for buying things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money to these accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds in postal mail and have to send the moneyh to this address and follow the steps listed below:

The money have to be a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, in which the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that do not have appropriate inmate information provided the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
