Filling Out Money Orders

      Glenda – We are not the actual Bexar County jail. We are a private website that tries to help people who have family or friends in jail. But we did get some information. The Bexar County jail is no longer accepting Western Union. We were not able to find out if that was a permanent or temporary thing. We suspect permanent.

      Dennis – No. Right under the category you are in, Filling Out Money Orders, is a category titled Mailing a Money Order. The information you need is there.

    do I have to open an account to send a money order? my son just went in. this is my first time doing this & I’m trying to send him some money and I don’t know if he needs to have an open account before I can send him a money order. does he have to do anything inside or do I have to call to set up an account?

      Hope – Anyone can get a sid number on a person who is incarcerated. You can call Central Records at 210-335-6201. You will need to give them his name and date of birth.
