Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide inmates a bank account for prisoner funds and for buying things not issued by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit funds to inmate’s accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners money in the postal service and have to send it to the following address and do so in accordance with the directions shows below:

The funds must be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a postal 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 hold period the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send any cash or checks.
