Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that was created to provide a bank account for inmate monies and for purchasing things not issued by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can add funds to these accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners money in the mail and will have to send money to the following address and follow the directions written below:

The deposit must be a money order 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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold, and during this period the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and checks won’t be accepted so do not send cash or checks.
