Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit money to prisoner’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send inmates money by way of the postal service and must send those funds to this address and follow the steps written 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. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, in which the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have correct inmate information if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be accepted for deposit so don’t send cash or checks.
