Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners an account for inmate funds and for buying items not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add funds to these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send inmates money through the postal service and must send the moneyh to this address and follow the directions written below:

The deposit have to be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, and during this hold period the inmate will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have correct inmate information if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Checks and cash will not be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send checks or cash.
