Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit money to these accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money by way of postal mail and have to send money to the following address and follow the rules listed below:

The funds must be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should 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 holding period, and during this period the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that do not have correct prisoner information if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address.
