Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was started to provide inmates a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add money to prisoner’s accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds through the mail and have to send the money to the address below and do so in accordance with the policies given below:

The deposit has to be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to 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 holding period, and during this period the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that do not have correct inmate information provided the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Cash and checks cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send cash or checks.
