Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may send money to these accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates funds in the postal service and have to send those funds to the address below and do so in accordance with the steps given below:

The money have to 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 U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, in which the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have valid inmate info but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Cash and checks will not be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send checks or cash.
