Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank type account for inmate money and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can add funds to inmate’s Commissary 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 choose to send inmates money by way of the mail and will have to send money to the address below and follow the directions provided below:

The funds must be in the form of 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 U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, and during this period the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have valid inmate information provided the envelope has a return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
