Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that serves to provide a bank-like account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can send money to prisoner’s accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners funds by way of the postal service and must send the money to the address below and follow the steps written below:

The funds have to be a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, during which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that do not have correct prisoner information if the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks won’t be deposited so do not send any cash or checks.
