Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide a bank account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may add money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds in postal mail and will have to send money to the following address and do so in accordance with the rules provided below:

The funds must be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’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 kept for a 15-day hold, and during this period the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that do not have appropriate inmate info provided the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send any cash or checks.
