Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying things not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add money into these accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates money in the mail and will have to send it to the following address and follow the policies provided below:

The money has to be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, during which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Cash and checks can’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send any checks or cash.
