Inmate Money

Every federal prison has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates an account for prisoner money and for buying things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit money into these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money in the mail and have to send the moneyh to this address and follow the rules written below:

Federal Bureau of Prisons
Insert Valid Committed Inmate Name
Insert Inmate Eight-Digit Register Number
Post Office Box 474701
Des Moines, Iowa 50947-0001

The deposit have to be in the form of 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, in which the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have correct prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks will not be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any cash or checks.

Via Western Union Quick Collect Program: Prisoner’s friends and family are also able to send prisoners money using Western Union’s Quick Collect Program. Money sent to a prisoner with the Western Union Quick Collect Program can be sent via one of these methods:

  1. At a physical location using cash. In order to locate the closest agent, you should call 1-800-325-6000 or visit
  2. By phone with a credit or debit card: Call 1-800-634-3422 and choose phone promt option 2.
  3. Online with a credit/debit card: Visit and choose “Quick Collect.”

For the Western Union Quick Collect transaction, this info must be included:

  1. Correct Inmate Eight-Digit Register Number (entered with no spaces or dashes) followed immediately by Inmate’s Last Name
  2. Committed Inmate Full Name entered on Attention Line
  3. Code City: FBOP, DC

If the wrong register number and/or name are used and accepted and sent to that inmate, funds might not be returned.
