Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate money and for buying items not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can send funds into these accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money in postal mail and must send the moneyh to the following address and do so in accordance with the steps provided below:

The funds have to be in a money order 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 period, in which the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have appropriate prisoner information provided the envelope has a valid return address. Checks and cash can’t be deposited so do not send any cash or checks.
