Anyone can deposit money to prisoner’s 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 mail and have to send the moneyh to this address and do so in accordance with the policies listed below:

The deposit have to be in a money order that is 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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, during which the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that do not have correct prisoner information if the envelope you sent it in has a return address.
