Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates a bank account for inmate money and for buying things not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may add funds to these Commissary accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners money by way of the mail and have to send the money to the address below and follow the rules given below:

The funds must 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 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 period, and during this hold period the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have appropriate prisoner info but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks can’t be accepted for deposit so don’t send checks or cash.
