Friends, family, or other people can send money into these accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send prisoners funds in postal mail and have to send those funds to the address below and do so in accordance with the steps written below:

The money have to be in a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number.
