Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may deposit funds to these 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 choose to send prisoners funds in the postal service and will have to send money to the address below and do so in accordance with the steps listed below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, and in this time the prisoner will not get the deposit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have appropriate inmate information but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Checks and cash cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
