Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide inmates a bank-like account for inmate monies and for buying things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can add funds to inmate’s Commissary accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds by way of postal mail and must send money to this address and follow the policies written below:

The deposit has to be a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, in which the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have valid inmate info provided the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted so don’t send any checks or cash.
