Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners a bank type account for inmate money and for buying things not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money into these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send prisoners money in the postal service and have to send it to the following address and follow the directions provided below:

The funds have to 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. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day holding period, and in this time the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that do not have appropriate prisoner information provided the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and checks will not be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
