I don't send my husband alot, mostly b/c I can't afford to. But when I get alittle extra I try to send him some, especially till he can start working, so he can keep up with stamps to mail me letters.
There are several ways and if you aren't in VA you may want to check with your state DOC. No matter which you chose you must have his inmate/DOC number for it to get to him.
The easiet way is J-Pay, but there is an extra charge to send it this way that varies on the amount you send. This goes through the fastest though, I've never sent it this way
VA DOC also accepts western union payments, there are extra fees, with this depending on how much you want to send. And you have to make sure that you have all the inmates information needed for the account transfer
The other way is money orders.
The postal money orders are what the VA DOC perfers, b/c they usually go through quicker. They cost 1.10 - 1.50 depending on the amount you want to send.
You can also send money orders from other place. I use money gram, they are .60 at walmart and usually credit to his account in 2 weeks, sometimes alot quicker ( I also stick a note in the envlope saying something short like hey baby its only 30 but hope it helps, so he knows when it was sent).
Make sure that the money orders are filled out correctly and contain his DOC number.
