Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying items not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add funds into these Commissary accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds by way of the postal service and must send money to the address below and follow the steps given below:

The funds have to be a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, during which the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited so do not send cash or checks.
