Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was started to provide a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can send funds to 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 choose to send inmates funds in postal mail and must send the moneyh to the following address and do so in accordance with the directions provided below:

The deposit must 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 best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day holding period, during which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that don’t have appropriate inmate info but only if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and checks won’t be accepted so don’t send cash or checks.
