Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners a bank type account for prisoner money and for buying things not issued by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money to inmate’s accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates money by way of the postal service and must send it to this address and follow the directions listed below:

The deposit must be a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Cash and checks can’t be accepted so don’t send cash or checks.
