Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was started to provide a bank-like account for inmate monies and for buying things not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can add money to inmate’s Commissary accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send inmates funds through the postal service and will have to send funds to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps shows below:

The deposit must be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you 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 during this hold period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that do not have correct prisoner information if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and checks will not be deposited so don’t send any checks or cash.
