Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit funds into these Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates funds through the postal service and will have to send funds to the following address and do so in accordance with the directions shows below:

The money 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 subject to a 15-day hold period, during which the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have correct prisoner information provided the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Cash and checks will not be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send checks or cash.
