Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary which was started to provide a bank type account for prisoner funds and for buying things not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds to inmate’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds through postal mail and have to send funds to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps written below:

The funds have to be in 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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have correct inmate information but only if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
