Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that was created to provide inmates a bank account for inmate monies and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can send funds into these accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds in the mail and must send money to this address and do so in accordance with the steps shows below:

The deposit must be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day holding period, and during this hold period the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have correct inmate info but only if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Personal checks and cash will not be deposited so do not send checks or cash.
