Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners an account for inmate monies and for buying things not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add money to inmate’s Commissary accounts with 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 must send those funds to the following address and follow the rules shows below:

The deposit must be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold, in which the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have appropriate inmate info but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be accepted for deposit so don’t send any checks or cash.
