Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate money and for buying items not issued by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send prisoners money through the mail and will have to send money to the address below and do so in accordance with the policies given below:

The deposit must be in the form of a money order that is 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 processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that do not have correct inmate info if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
