Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate monies and for buying things not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money through postal mail and have to send money to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies given below:

The deposit have to be a money order that is 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 held for a 15-day hold period, and during this period the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have valid inmate info if the envelope has an adequate return address. Checks and cash can’t be deposited so do not send cash or checks.
