    For the many questions about inmate’s money accounts, please note the following information:

    Inmate Money
    Inmates have two accounts, a personal account and a
    savings account. Upon admission, if an inmate is in
    possession of any money, it will be placed in the in-
    mate’s personal account. Inmates who obtain facility
    jobs, also called work assignments, are paid for those
    jobs. Inmates who work for MassCorr, the Department
    correctional industries program, are paid an hourly
    rate. Inmates who are assigned to jobs other than in-
    dustries program jobs are paid a daily rate. Half of the
    money that an inmate earns from a job is placed in
    his/her personal account and the other half is placed
    in his/her savings account. This division of inmate
    pay into the personal and savings accounts is dictated
    by state law. Inmates may spend the money in their
    personal account on canteen items or may send it to
    family and friends. The money that is placed in the
    savings account is given to inmates upon discharge
    from the Department. Inmates ordinarily cannot gain
    access to their savings account money while they are
    serving their sentences in the Department so that they
    will have money to spend in the community for basic
    necessities upon reentry. There are three exceptions to
    this general rule. These exceptions are for inmates
    who are serving life sentences for any offense; inmates
    who have been found to be Sexually Dangerous Per-
    sons and are civilly committed to the Massachusetts
    Treatment Center from a day to life; and inmates for
    whom a Superintendent has determined there exists a
    compelling need to gain access to those funds.
    Family members and/or friends of an inmate may
    arrange to have money deposited in an inmate’s per-
    sonal account. Money must be in an acceptable form
    for it to be deposited in the inmate’s account: money
    orders (completed with yo
    ur address, the inmate’s
    name and commitment number
    ), certified checks, or
    personal checks. Cash is not allowed under any cir-
    cumstances. Money orders, personal checks, and certi-
    fied checks are allowed to be mailed to inmates. When
    doing this, please remember to include the inmate’s
    commitment number on the order. Please keep in
    mind that personal checks can take up to 10 business
    days before being cleared by the bank. People may
    deposit money orders and checks for inmates in a des-
    ignated box at each facility or send them to the inmate
    via the US postal service.
    For additional information regarding Accounts, please
    refer to
    103 CMR 405, Inmate Funds
    which is accessi-
    ble at the Department’s internet website.
