Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank account for prisoner money and for buying items not issued to inmates by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add money to inmate’s accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners money by way of postal mail and have to send money to the address below and do so in accordance with the directions given below:

The money have to be in a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope has a return address. Personal checks and cash cannot be accepted so don’t send checks or cash.
