Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was created to provide inmates an account for prisoner money and for buying things not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can deposit money to inmate’s accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds in the postal service and must send funds to this address and follow the policies provided below:

The deposit must be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should 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 holding period, during which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have appropriate inmate information if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be accepted so don’t send any checks or cash.
