Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank type account for inmate monies and for buying things not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can add money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates money in the mail and will have to send it to the following address and do so in accordance with the rules provided below:

The money must be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have appropriate prisoner information provided the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Checks and cash can’t be accepted so do not send cash or checks.
