Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide inmates an account for prisoner money and for purchasing things not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit money to prisoner’s accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates money through postal mail and will have to send it to this address and do so in accordance with the policies shows below:

The deposit must be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, in which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have correct inmate information provided the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
