Every federal prison has a Commissary which was created to provide a bank-like account for prisoner money and for buying things not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit money into these Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send prisoners money in postal mail and must send funds to the following address and follow the rules shows below:
