Inmate Email

To send an email message to an inmate you must follow an exact process to ensure that the letter gets to the inmate.

TRULINCS – Trust Fund Limited Inmate Computer System

Prisoners are allowed to receive emails only from persons listed on their approved contact list. An federal inmate has to make a request to recieve and send emails with a family member or friend by placing that person into their contact list.

Every email is monitored. Prison inmates must consent to email monitoring when they sign up to participate in the email program. Inmate contacts give consent to getting monitored when they agree to correspondence with the prisoner and are reminded every time that they get an email letter from the prisoner.

When a contact is approved that person will get an email message which directs them to CorrLink at www.corrlink.com.
CorrLink Inmate Email System

Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit money to inmate’s 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 prisoners money through the mail and must send the money to this address and follow the steps listed 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 has 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 processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, and in this time the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send cash or checks.

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

  1. At Western Union location using cash. In order to locate the closest agent, you can call 1-800-325-6000 or visit www.westernunion.com.
  2. By phone with a credit or debit card: Call 1-800-634-3422 and choose menu option 2.
  3. On the web with a credit/debit card: Go to www.westernunion.com and choose “Quick Collect.”

For the Western Union Quick Collect transaction, all of 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 the wrong prisoner, the funds might not get returned.
