Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners an account for inmate monies and for buying items not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may send money to these accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates money in the mail and have to send those funds to the following address and follow the policies given below:

The deposit have to be in the form of a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day holding period, and during this period the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have appropriate inmate info provided the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Cash and checks will not be accepted for deposit so do not send any checks or cash.

    My husband is in this prison has been there since Demeber we have been together for 7 years. I filled out a visitation form and was denied because i caught a felony almost 5 years ago for working and drawing unemployeement i have 4 month of probation left and they say i cant see him while im on probation i do know there policy and procedure for that states i have to get a letter from my P.O. and then the warden has to approve it and i did get the letter from my P.O. it didnt follow that procedure so it looks like im gonna have to fight for my rights thats my husband it shouldnt have to be that way the incarceration is hard enough and now i cant see him either thats a good way to make the incarceration easy for the family, right?
