Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners an account for inmate monies and for buying items not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates funds through the mail and have to send it to this address and follow the rules written below:

The deposit have to be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, and during this period the prisoner will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that do not have valid inmate info but only if the envelope has a return address. Cash and personal checks will not be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send any checks or cash.
