Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide an account for inmate money and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit funds into these accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners money through the postal service and have to send money to the following address and follow the policies provided below:

The funds have to be 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 holding period, and during this period the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have valid prisoner information if the envelope has an adequate return address. Checks and cash won’t be accepted so don’t send cash or checks.
