Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which serves to provide inmates a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates money in the mail and must send funds to the following address and follow the rules written below:

The deposit have to be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, and during this hold period the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have correct inmate info if the envelope has a return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be accepted for deposit so do not send any checks or cash.
