Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that was started to provide inmates an account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not provided by the correctional facility.

Anyone can send funds to prisoner’s accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates funds through postal mail and must send it to the address below and do so in accordance with the policies shows below:

The funds must be a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, and during this hold period the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have valid inmate information provided the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address.
