Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners an account for inmate monies and for buying things not issued by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add money to prisoner’s Commissary accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds by way of the mail and have to send the moneyh to the following address and follow the policies written below:

The deposit must be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, and during this period the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address.
