Each state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide prisoners a bank-like account for prisoner money and for buying things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may add funds into these Commissary accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send prisoners funds through postal mail and have to send it to the following address and follow the directions written below:

The deposit has 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day holding period, during which the inmate will not get the deposit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that do not have correct prisoner information provided the envelope it was sent it has a return address.
