Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary which was created to provide prisoners a bank account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may add funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates money through postal mail and must send the moneyh to the address below and follow the steps listed below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order 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 processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, during which the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have valid inmate information but only if the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and checks will not be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
