Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates a bank-like account for inmate funds and for buying items not issued by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds to these accounts using 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 in the postal service and must send funds to the address below and follow the policies listed below:

The money must 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 U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and during this period the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have appropriate prisoner information provided the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Cash and checks can’t be deposited so do not send any cash or checks.
