Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners an account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can send money into these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send prisoners funds in the mail and must send it to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies written below:

The funds must be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, and in this time the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have appropriate inmate information if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Checks and cash can’t be accepted so do not send checks or cash.
