Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate money and for buying things not issued by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may send money to inmate’s accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates money through postal mail and have to send the moneyh to the address below and follow the policies given below:

The deposit must be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, and in this time the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have appropriate inmate info but only if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
