Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit funds to inmate’s accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners funds by way of postal mail and must send it to the following address and follow the policies listed below:

The funds have to be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, during which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have appropriate prisoner information provided the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks can’t be accepted so do not send any cash or checks.
