Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners an account for prisoner funds and for buying things not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may add money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates funds through postal mail and must send those funds to this address and do so in accordance with the directions given below:

The money have to be 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 kept for a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that don’t have valid inmate info but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Checks and cash won’t be accepted for deposit so do not send any cash or checks.
