Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which serves to provide a bank account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add funds into these accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds by way of the mail and will have to send the money to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps shows below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that do not have valid prisoner info provided the envelope has a return address. Checks and cash will not be accepted so do not send cash or checks.
