hmm. when I sent money orders to my son at Florence, I was told to make it out to him with his adc # . that was all. didn't have to put all that - much simpler.

Some units that my husband has been at have sent money orders back if they weren't made out: Pay to the order of: 'ADC for account of Inmate name and #'. Some don't require it, but I just got in the habit of filling them out that way, just to be on the safe side.

Sometimes depending on the prison you have to write it to the AZDOC for inmate followed by his ADC # other complexes want you to just write the inmates name & ADC #

Either one of these two ways,

On the payable to line of the money order write:

ADC for John Doe #00000 *his DOC number*

or just write John Doe #00000 *his DOC number*

Be sure & check with the prison complex to see how they want it written. Many are different, either way the money order should still get accepted & put on the inmates account as long as you have the inmates name & correct ID # on the money order along with your name & address.

You should call ahead to the prison & they will tell you which way their complex prefers the money orders to be written. Don't forget to sign & put your mailing address on the money order as well or they will not accept it, it could get returned to you & it's a real hassle sometimes trying to get them recashed in to make a new one. Some places charge a fee to cash back in the money order & get a new one & it's not always cheap.

Hope this helps

Good luck.

In the ADC manual the format is as follows:

Pay to tht order of Arizona Dept of Corrections
For the account of John Smith #1234560

Then a little hint that has helped me, on the outside of the envelope, on the front and the back I write ATTN: Inmate Banking. The reason is that if they don't check real close sometimes the MO gets through to the inmate and then it takes longer to go on the books and they can confiscate it as contraband because the inmate is not allowed to have MO's . This happened to me so I always write Inmate Banking on the envelope and have had no problems since.
