Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that serves to provide an account for inmate monies and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can send funds into these accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates money in the postal service and must send those funds to the address below and follow the rules listed below:

The money have to be 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 U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders 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 return to the sender funds that do not have appropriate inmate info if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Checks and cash cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send any checks or cash.
