Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was started to provide a bank account for prisoner money and for buying things not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add money to prisoner’s accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money in the postal service and have to send the moneyh to this address and do so in accordance with the directions written below:

The funds have to be in 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 kept for a 15-day holding period, in which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have appropriate inmate information if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and checks cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
