3 Ways of Sending Money to Inmates

  1. Lock Box: A no fee service with a shorter hold time for sending money via money order, personal check, or cashier’s checks.
  2. EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer): A paid service, this is the fastest option with funds posted to inmate’s account within 1 to 3 days.
  3. Mail funds directly to the institution: Never a fee. All funds except Certified Funds are subject to a 30 day hold.
