Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide inmates a bank account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit funds into these Commissary accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates money by way of postal mail and will have to send those funds to this address and follow the rules listed below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, during which the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have valid prisoner information provided the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks won’t be deposited so do not send any checks or cash.
