Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide a bank-like account for inmate monies and for buying things not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may send funds to inmate’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds by way of the postal service and must send the money to the following address and follow the directions provided below:

The money must be in 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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send checks or cash.
