Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that serves to provide a bank account for inmate funds and for buying items not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add funds to prisoner’s accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners money in the postal service and will have to send money to the address below and do so in accordance with the policies written below:

The money must be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should 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 during this period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope has a valid return address.
