Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that serves to provide inmates an account for prisoner funds and for buying things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add money to prisoner’s accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds through the mail and will have to send those funds to the address below and follow the policies provided below:

The deposit have to be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’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 processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and in this time the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have appropriate prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
