Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for buying items not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

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

The money must be a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, in which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted for deposit so do not send checks or cash.
