Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that serves to provide inmates a bank type account for inmate money and for buying items not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds into these accounts with 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 by way of the postal service and must send money to the address below and follow the steps shows below:

The deposit has 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 processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have valid inmate info provided the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Cash and checks can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
