Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank type account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can send money to inmate’s accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money through the mail and have to send those funds to this address and follow the directions provided below:

The deposit has to be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and in this time the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have valid inmate info but only if the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
