Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary which serves to provide inmates a bank account for inmate money and for buying things not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money to inmate’s Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds through postal mail and have to send the moneyh to this address and follow the directions given below:

The deposit must be in the form of a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day holding period, and during this period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have valid inmate info if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any cash or checks.
