Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add money to inmate’s Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners funds by way of the mail and have to send it to the address below and follow the policies given 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 advisable to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, during which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have appropriate prisoner information provided the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited so don’t send cash or checks.
