Friends, family, or other people may deposit money to these accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send prisoners funds in the postal service and have to send funds to the address below and do so in accordance with the rules written below:

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