Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that serves to provide an account for inmate funds and for buying things not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may send money into these Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates funds by way of the postal service and have to send it to the address below and follow the policies listed below:

The deposit must be a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, and during this period the inmate will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have valid prisoner information provided the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited so do not send any checks or cash.
