Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can send money into these Commissary 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 funds in postal mail and must send money to the following address and follow the rules listed below:

The deposit must be in a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and in this time the inmate will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have appropriate inmate information if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Personal checks and cash will not be accepted for deposit so do not send checks or cash.
