Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates a bank type account for prisoner funds and for buying items not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add funds to inmate’s Commissary accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds by way of the mail and will have to send money to this address and do so in accordance with the rules given below:

The deposit have to be in the form of a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you 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 have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have correct prisoner information but only if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Checks and cash will not be deposited so don’t send any cash or checks.
