Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add 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 to send prisoners money through postal mail and have to send money to this address and follow the steps written below:

Federal Bureau of Prisons
Insert Valid Committed Inmate Name
Insert Inmate Eight-Digit Register Number

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. You should use a U.S. Postal Service 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 prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender 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 accepted so do not send cash or checks.
