Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners an account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates money by way of postal mail and must send money to this address and do so in accordance with the directions given below:

The funds have to be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day holding period, in which the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that do not have valid prisoner info if the envelope has a valid return address. Checks and cash will not be deposited so don’t send any checks or cash.
