Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was started to provide inmates a bank account for inmate monies and for buying items not provided by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit money to these Commissary accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds in the postal service and have to send money to this address and do so in accordance with the policies listed below:

The funds must be a money order that is 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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, in which the prisoner will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that do not have appropriate prisoner info if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited so don’t send any checks or cash.
