Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank type account for prisoner funds and for buying items not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can send funds 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 prisoners money in the mail and must send the money to this address and do so in accordance with the policies given below:

The deposit has to 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, and during this period the prisoner will not get the deposit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have correct inmate info provided the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Cash and checks cannot be accepted for deposit so don’t send any cash or checks.
