Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that was created to provide inmates a bank type account for prisoner funds and for buying items not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may add money into these accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money by way of the postal service and must send money to the address below and follow the directions listed below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day holding period, and during this period the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that do not have correct prisoner information if the envelope has an adequate return address. Checks and cash cannot be accepted so don’t send any checks or cash.
