How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit funds to these accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send inmates funds in the mail and have to send those funds to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps given 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 post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day holding period, in which the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have appropriate inmate info if the envelope has an adequate return address. Checks and cash won’t be accepted so don’t send any cash or checks.
