Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary which serves to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates funds by way of the postal service and have to send money to this address and follow the directions listed below:

The money must be in a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, in which the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have appropriate prisoner info provided the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and checks will not be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send checks or cash.
