Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that was created to provide inmates a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can deposit funds into these accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send inmates funds in postal mail and must send those funds to this address and do so in accordance with the policies given below:

The deposit have to be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, in which the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that do not have correct prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks will not be deposited so don’t send cash or checks.
