Each prison has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate monies and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can deposit money to inmate’s Commissary accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates funds by way of the postal service and must send the moneyh to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies written below:

The money have to be a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day holding period, and during this period the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have correct inmate information if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Checks and cash will not be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send checks or cash.
