Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was created to provide inmates a bank type account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add funds to inmate’s accounts with 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 by way of the mail and have to send those funds to the address below and do so in accordance with the directions shows below:

The money have to 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, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that don’t have correct prisoner info provided the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address.
