Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds by way of postal mail and must send it to the address below and do so in accordance with the directions 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 advisable to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and during this hold period the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that do not have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send cash or checks.
