Sending Money to Inmates

Do you have a loved one currently incarcerated?  Believe it or not, everything in prison isn’t free.  Phone calls and emails home cost money.  So do commissary items such as clothes, shoes, toiletries, and food.  And while most inmates have job assignments, the pay is often just pennies an hour.  There are three options for sending money to federal inmates, and two of them work for state inmates as well.  We just updated our page on How to Send Money to a Federal Inmate to reflect changes in MoneyGram and Western Union’s websites.  We detail each step of the process for both of those options, as well as for sending money through the U.S. Postal Service.  Check it out.
