Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that serves to provide a bank account for inmate money and for buying items not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add funds to these Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates funds by way of postal mail and will have to send money to the address below and follow the steps provided below:

The money have to be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’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, during which the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that do not have appropriate prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any cash or checks.
