How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can deposit money to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send prisoners funds by way of the mail and have to send money to the following address and follow the steps provided below:

The money 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 U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, and during this hold period the inmate will not get the funds.
