Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank type account for inmate money and for buying things not issued by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may add funds to inmate’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates money through the postal service and have to send those funds to the following address and follow the steps given below:

The funds have to be a money order that is made out to the inmate’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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, and during this hold period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that do not have appropriate inmate information but only if the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and checks won’t be accepted for deposit so don’t send checks or cash.
