Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide a bank type account for inmate monies and for buying things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add funds into these accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money through postal mail and must send funds to the following address and follow the directions provided below:

The funds must be in the form of 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 U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have correct prisoner info provided the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address.
