Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners an account for inmate money and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may add money to inmate’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates money by way of the postal service and will have to send funds to this address and do so in accordance with the policies written below:

The funds must be in a money order made out to the inmate’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 held for a 15-day hold period, in which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that do not have correct inmate info but only if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and checks will not be accepted for deposit so do not send cash or checks.
