Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was created to provide a bank-like account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit funds to these Commissary accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds in the postal service and will have to send money to the following address and follow the directions given below:

The money have to be 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 post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, and during this period the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have correct prisoner info but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Checks and cash can’t be accepted for deposit so do not send any cash or checks.
