Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide inmates an account for prisoner funds and for buying things not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds through the postal service and must send funds to the address below and follow the policies provided below:

The money must be in 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 subject to a 15-day hold, in which the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have valid inmate information provided the envelope has a valid return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be accepted so don’t send any cash or checks.
