Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates an account for inmate money and for buying items not issued by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can add money into these accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money by way of postal mail and will have to send money to this address and do so in accordance with the rules listed below:

The deposit must be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, and during this hold period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have appropriate prisoner information but only if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks can’t be deposited so don’t send any cash or checks.
