All email is subject to monitoring. Prison inmates must consent to being monitored when they sign up to participate in the email system.

When a person is added to an inmates contact list they will get an email confirmation which directs them to the CorrLink system at www.corrlink.com.

Inmate Money

Every federal prison has a Commissary which was started to provide inmates an account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not provided by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add 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 to send prisoners money through postal mail and must send the money 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 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, in which 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 has an adequate return address. Checks and cash will not be accepted 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 via one of these methods:

  1. At an agent location using cash. In order to locate the closest agent, you should 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 select phone prompt option 2.
  3. Online with a credit or debit card: Go to www.westernunion.com and choose “Quick Collect.”

For every Western Union Quick Collect transaction, all of this info has to 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 federal inmate, funds might not get returned to you.
