Sending Money to an inmate in Missouri

Family and friends of an inmate may send money to an inmate by United States Postal Money Order, or online through Accesscorrections.com.  When doing so, the money order must be made payable to the Missouri Department of Corrections and accompanied by a Department of Corrections deposit slip.  Each offender has access to deposit forms and can send the slips to you at any time.  Be sure to include the inmate's name and ID number in the Memo field.   All transactions should be forwarded to the following address:

Offender Finance Office
Missouri Department of Corrections
P.O. Box 1609
Jefferson City, MO 65102

This office processes money transactions only, all other correspondence sent to this address will be disposed. It is important that you supply all information requested on the deposit slip in a legible manner. If you have questions, you may call the Offender Finance Office at (573) 526-6445.

Do not deposit money to other offenderʼs accounts. This is usually a sign of illegal activity or a way to get around established procedures and will result in disciplinary sanctions.

re: Inmate not in system

He will not contact us, he will need to contact a staff member within his facility or the department of correction directly.  You can let him know about this either through a telephone call, or by writing him a letter.
