Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that was created to provide inmates a bank-like account for inmate monies and for buying items not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may send funds to these accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds through the postal service and will have to send it to the address below and follow the directions shows below:

The funds must be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day holding period, and in this time the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that do not have valid inmate info but only if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be accepted so do not send any checks or cash.
