Anyone may deposit money to these accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners funds by way of the mail and will have to send money to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies listed below:

The deposit must be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number.
