Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate money and for buying items not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can send money to inmate’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

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

The funds have to be in the form of 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 U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that do not have correct prisoner information if the envelope has an adequate return address. Checks and cash cannot be deposited so don’t send any checks or cash.
