Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners a bank type account for inmate money and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can send money to prisoner’s accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners money in the mail and have to send money to the following address and follow the directions given below:

The money must be a money order made out to the inmate’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 processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, during which the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have valid prisoner information provided the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Checks and cash will not be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send checks or cash.
