Send Money

Incarcerated people do not need money for their day-to-day needs while incarcerated. Each facility provides all of the essential food, clothing and medical care necessary. However, there may be some personal care items and toiletries they may wish to purchase on his or her own. Additionally, they can buy snacks and items such as TV's, radios and hot pots at the facility canteen.

Incarcerated people are not allowed to receive money from another incarcerated individual/resident; or non-incarcerated people/residents still on paper supervision; or patients in other secure treatment facilities in Minnesota. Funds sent in violation of DOC policy will be placed in the incarcerated individual's HOLD account until his/her release. Funds placed in HOLD are subject to deductions.

A cost of confinement surcharge and, if applicable, a restitution surcharge will be deducted from funds received.

See DOC Policy 300.100 for more information.
