Welcome to Prison Talk. If he doesn't have a bank account, some prisons (including federal) have limited program, usually savings, not checking accounts, available for prisoners. When I was inside, Bank of America set up a program with the bop to allow inmates to open a limited savings account where he could deposit the check. If that isn't available to him, try contacting different banks to learn if they are less restrictive than yours bank is.

Or could he possibly put it on his books? He could ask others or his counselor what the proper procedure would be.
I thought about why that frisbee was getting bigger and bigger.........
then it hit me.

I went onto the IRS website in October and completed the form with his facilities address and he recieved the stimulus check last week. He was able to put it on his books.

Back of check write; Deposit ONLY as long as he is on the account. If it is a third party check i.e. he isn’t on your account or his name isn’t on the account but you initiated a 3rd party check properly by him signing his name then Payable to the order of —— your name——
Federal checks may be limited with 3 rd party cashing so you may want to investigate that portion. just call the irs. Ask a generic question like: can i write “payable to” as a third party check on the stimulus check. call them and ask! wait times are huge so call forst thing in the morning.
