Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide inmates an account for inmate funds and for buying items not issued to inmates by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add money to inmate’s accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates money through the postal service and will have to send it to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies shows below:

The money must be in a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and during this hold period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have correct prisoner information provided the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks will not be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any checks or cash.
