Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate monies and for buying items not issued by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

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

The funds must be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, in which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have appropriate prisoner info provided the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Checks and cash won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
