Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was started to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate money and for buying items not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may deposit money into these accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

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

The money 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day holding period, and during this hold period the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that do not have correct inmate information if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send checks or cash.
