Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide a bank account for prisoner money and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can send money to prisoner’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds by way of the mail and have to send money to the address below and do so in accordance with the rules written below:

The funds must be a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold, and during this period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that do not have valid prisoner information if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Checks and cash can’t be accepted so don’t send any cash or checks.

    A prisoner has an indeterminate sentence for 1 to 3 years. If the prisoner has good behavior when may he go before the board?

  2. Ashley H says:

    I went to visit my husband today (Friday) 6/23/17. And I went up there to find out he didn’t have any visitation they took his visits and phone calls for six months because he had got a ticket so they took visits for six months and phone calls for 45 days after I had called the day before to make sure he can have a visit drove two hours just to be told I can’t visit him it was very depressing and sad that I did not get to see him like that is all they have to look forward to on the outside world I don’t care what u get a ticket for don’t take the only thing inmates have away from them they can’t take mail away why can they take visitation away or at least let them be able to call it’s sad because this is exactly how families fall apart the system has a great way of splitting up families I did not like my experience at Elmira correctional facility they treat u just like ur another number or inmate they don’t care about anyone of us inmates there families it’s sad we have a daughter a 6 year old daughter that can’t even see her daddy or talk to her daddy on the phone 6 months of no contact is a little harsh don’t ya think?
