Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that serves to provide an account for prisoner funds and for buying things not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add money to prisoner’s accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds in the postal service and will have to send money to this address and follow the rules listed 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 should use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold, and in this time the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have appropriate prisoner information but only if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be accepted so don’t send cash or checks.
