Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide prisoners an account for prisoner funds and for buying things not issued regularly by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may send money to inmate’s accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates funds through the postal service and have to send the money to this address and do so in accordance with the steps listed below:

The money must 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 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, in which the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have correct inmate info but only if the envelope has a return address. Cash and checks can’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send checks or cash.
