Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money to inmate’s accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

The money must be a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number.

The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that don’t have valid inmate info if the envelope has a valid return address. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted for deposit so do not send checks or cash.
