Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners an account for inmate money and for purchasing things not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can send money to prisoner’s accounts using Western Union or by mail.

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

The money has to be a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and during this hold period the prisoner will not get the deposit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have appropriate prisoner info if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Cash and checks will not be accepted so do not send any checks or cash.
