Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide inmates a bank account for prisoner money and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may send money to these accounts using 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 mail and have to send it to this address and follow the directions provided below:

The deposit have to be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’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 held for a 15-day hold period, and in this time the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have appropriate inmate information but only if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Cash and checks can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any cash or checks.
