Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate money and for buying things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can send money to these Commissary accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates money by way of postal mail and will have to send those funds to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies provided below:

The money have to be a money order 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 processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, in which the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that do not have correct inmate info but only if the envelope has a return address. Cash and personal checks will not be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any cash or checks.
