Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide inmates a bank-like account for inmate monies and for buying things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit money into these accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates money through the mail and have to send the moneyh to the following address and follow the directions written below:

The money 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. You should use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, in which the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that do not have correct inmate info but only if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Personal checks and cash will not be accepted for deposit so do not send checks or cash.
