Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners an account for prisoner funds and for buying items not issued regularly by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money to inmate’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money in postal mail and must send money to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps shows below:

The deposit 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, and during this period the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have correct inmate info if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send cash or checks.
