Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide a bank account for inmate money and for purchasing things not issued by the correctional facility.

Family, friends, or other sources may send funds to inmate’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds through the postal service and have to send those funds to this address and follow the steps written below:

The deposit must be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, and during this hold period the inmate will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have valid prisoner information if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address.

    Terrible experience. The officer M. James doesn’t take her job seriously. She is very disrespectful and everything is a joke to her.
