How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may add funds into these Commissary accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates funds by way of the postal service and must send money to the address below and do so in accordance with the policies listed below:

The funds have to be in a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number.

The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that do not have appropriate inmate info provided the envelope has an adequate return address.
