Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank type account for prisoner money and for buying things not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may send funds into these accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money in postal mail and have to send those funds to the address below and follow the directions provided below:

The deposit must 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, and during this hold period the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that don’t have appropriate prisoner information provided the envelope has a return address.
