Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit money to 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 prisoners money through postal mail and must send the moneyh to the following address and follow the policies given below:

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.

The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have correct prisoner info if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address.
