Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary which was started to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate funds and for buying items not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds 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 funds through postal mail and have to send funds to this address and do so in accordance with the rules written below:

The money have to be in the form of a money order that is 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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, and during this period the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have correct prisoner information but only if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be deposited so do not send cash or checks.
