Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was created to provide a bank account for inmate money and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can send money into these 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 postal mail and must send it to the address below and follow the policies shows below:

The funds must be a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have appropriate inmate information but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be accepted so don’t send cash or checks.
