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  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.

Surgical Implants

Wanting to visit inmate.  One vistitor has knee replacement (metal) .  Is this going to be a problem or what do I need to do before visit?

Visiting with a medical implant/device

You will need a doctors note that explains what the implant is, and where it is located.  They will still do a metal detection probably by wand.  Make sure the doctors name and number are also available in case they need to call to verify, but a note should suffice.  If for some reason you cannot get the doctors note call the institution, they may also allow other medical paperwork that you already have.


I seen that inmates cant receive stamps or blank paper. Can they receive an addresses envelope with a stamp on it. So they can write back

re: Stamped Self Addressed Envelopes

No, unfortunately they are not allowed, they can however buy this stuff from the commissary if you send them money.


How much money would they need in order to puchase these things?

Visiting at Moberly Correctional Facility

We drove three hrs. for the first time to visit an inmate, brought daughter and self. Outside in the parking lot while trying to park an officer with his flash light looking in the vehicle next to mine was heading toward my vehichle before my daughter and I could get out looked at me and moved on. We proceed to check in and daughter's sweater had lace (lace that had material under it) at the neck line (fullly covered) and same officer scorned her to put a jacket on. I gave her mine. The lady at the desk advised me the top I had on fully coverd to my neck line I could not wear. I had a shirt on underneath and not sure what the issue was but respectfully stated ok. The next and final issue was that my minor daughter (15) did not have an ID could not sit in the waiting room by herself therefore we could not visit the inmate. At the same time we were going through this a lady had a window that would not roll up and was partially duck taped (mind you not the one I saw earlier). We returned three hrs. home disappointed. The real issue is the degrading, harrassing, tormenting unfriendliy enviroment presented towards the family. We are not the inmates. You encourage family to visit but treat them this way and your web page is extremly unclear as to the rules. I think setting extreme rules once a person arrives just to present what feels like a power play represents our justice system poorly, Adds more anxiety to the family's and shows our children that the legal system is cruel, unfair and unjust. My suggestion While we respect and obey the rules you set forth. Make them clear. Family's are hurting too this time is a heavy load of stress and anxiety to treat them with dignity.

Thank you

re: Visiting Moberly

I'm sorry to hear about your experience.  Let me clarify a few things though, we maintain information on several thousand correctional facilities and strive our best to give as much information as is available.  The problems you had at this institution are actually covered on our site, and if you look at the end of our visitation section you will see a link that says 'Friends and Family inmate guidebook here'.  This perhaps should have a different title to make it more clear but this contains all the information that friends and family members need to know.  On page 8 you will see a section titled 'What Identification is needed to visit'.  This section clearly states anyone 13-17 will need a school photo ID, or a department of revenue identification card.

As for the dress code, we always encourage any visitors to go about visiting in the smartest way possible by, BRINGING A CHANGE OF CLOTHES.  I cannot emphasize this enough, as it is really up to the gaurd on duty what is acceptable or not.  The dress code policy is also covered in the guide above and it states the following:

"We ask that all visitors abide by a dress code to ensure other visitors are not offended and to prevent security risks. Clothing should not be tight, transparent or revealing. It should not display gang, racial, inappropriate or inflammatory language or symbols and may not have a camouflage design. Skirts, dresses and shorts may be no shorter than two inches above the top of the knee cap, and no wrap-around skirts or dresses or clothing with slits are permitted. No holes or slits are permitted in pants. Shirts, blouses and tops must cover the chest and stomach and have sleeves that cover the shoulders, without display of cleavage or midriff. Appropriate undergarments and shoes must be worn at all times. Undergarments with wire or metal supports are discouraged because you may be required to clear a metal detector. No headwear is allowed except for verified religious purposes. Like all items, headwear is subject to search for possible contraband."

Again I'm sorry you found our site unclear, but these issues were addressed above and we do our best to make all this information available to you and others for the thousands of institutions in the United States. 

I am very pleased that you shared this experience and complaints with us, because hopefully someone else who is planning on visiting Moberly will avoid having the same problems once they read your comment and this reply.
