Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners a bank type account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with 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 must send money to the following address and follow the rules listed below:

The deposit has to be in the form of a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to 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 money. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that don’t have correct prisoner info provided the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be accepted for deposit so don’t send cash or checks.
