Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that serves to provide a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for buying things not issued regularly by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may add funds into these 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 through postal mail and will have to send those funds to the address below and do so in accordance with the policies listed below:

The money 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. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day holding period, during which the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have appropriate inmate information but only if the envelope has a return address. Cash and personal checks won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any cash or checks.
