Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide inmates a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for buying items not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may send funds into these Commissary accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds in postal mail and must send it to the address below and do so in accordance with the directions listed below:

The funds have to be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’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, and during this period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that don’t have correct inmate information but only if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted for deposit so don’t send any checks or cash.
