Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was started to provide inmates a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for buying things not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

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

The deposit must be in a money order that is 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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, during which the inmate will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that do not have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted for deposit so do not send cash or checks.
