Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was started to provide a bank-like account for inmate money and for buying things not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit money to inmate’s Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money through the mail and have to send it to this address and follow the rules written below:

Federal Bureau of Prisons
Insert Valid Committed Inmate Name
Insert Inmate Eight-Digit Register Number
Post Office Box 474701
Des Moines, Iowa 50947-0001

The money have to be in the form of a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, and during this period the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have valid prisoner info if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send checks or cash.

Via Western Union Quick Collect Program: Prisoner’s friends and family are also able to send prisoners money using Western Union’s Quick Collect Program. Money sent to a prisoner using the Western Union Quick Collect Program can be sent using one of these methods:

  1. At Western Union location using cash. In order to locate the closest agent, you can call 1-800-325-6000 or visit www.westernunion.com.
  2. On the phone with a credit/debit card: Call 1-800-634-3422 and select phone promt option 2.
  3. Online with a credit/debit card: Visit www.westernunion.com and choose “Quick Collect.”

For the Western Union Quick Collect transaction, this info must be included:

  1. Correct and valid Inmate Eight-Digit Register Number (entered with no spaces or dashes) followed immediately by Inmate’s Last Name
  2. Committed Inmate Full Name entered on Attention Line
  3. Code City: FBOP, DC

If the wrong register number and/or name are used and accepted and sent to that prisoner, funds might not get returned to you.

    My son is housed at Coleman low. I have found the staff to be courteous and polite. However, I have one complaint. I don’t understand why visitors aren’t told their clothes, or shoes are not appropriate until they are about to be checked in. I have seen this happen every time I have visited. A person may be there an hour or two and be ready to go through security and be told they can’t go in unless they wear a different color shirt or get different shoes, etc. Then that person has to go find a store and buy something different using their visiting time when they could have already taken care of the situation earlier if they had known about it. Please consider changing that policy. Sometimes people have not seen their loved one in a very long time or they have driven a long distance to be told they can’t go in. It would be so helpful and considerate if inappropriate clothes or shoes could be addressed as soon as possible, maybe when they bring their visitor form up to the desk.

    • Site Admin says:

      Yes- I totally agree with you about this. The worst is when these clothing related rules are changed at the last minute or without notice; or when they are not enforced consistently.

    so what colors are NOT allowed for clothing?
