Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was created to provide a bank type account for prisoner money and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can deposit funds into these accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners funds through postal mail and will have to send money to the address below and follow the steps listed below:

The money have to be in the form of 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and during this period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that do not have appropriate prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Cash and personal checks will not be deposited so don’t send any checks or cash.
