Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was started to provide inmates an account for inmate money and for purchasing things not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can deposit money to prisoner’s accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners money by way of postal mail and have to send the money to the address below and follow the steps provided below:

The deposit must be a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, and during this period the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have appropriate prisoner info provided the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and checks cannot be accepted so don’t send any cash or checks.
