Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates 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 send funds to inmate’s accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates funds in the mail and must send funds to this address and do so in accordance with the steps shows below:

The money 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 post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, during which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that do not have valid inmate info but only if the envelope has a return address. Personal checks and cash cannot be accepted for deposit so do not send checks or cash.
