Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was started to provide inmates a bank account for inmate monies and for buying things not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can send funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money by way of the mail and must send those funds to the address below and follow the directions provided below:

The money has to be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to 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, in which the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have appropriate inmate info but only if the envelope has a return address. Checks and cash won’t be deposited so do not send any cash or checks.
