Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was created to provide a bank-like account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued 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 through postal mail and must send the money to this address and follow the rules 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 money 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 period, in which the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have valid prisoner info if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Checks and cash will not be accepted so do not send any cash or checks.

Via Western Union Quick Collect Program: Prisoner’s friends and family are also able to send prisoners money using 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 an agent location using cash. In order to locate the closest agent, you can call 1-800-325-6000 or go to
  2. On the phone with a credit/debit card: Call 1-800-634-3422 and select menu option 2.
  3. On the web with a credit/debit card: Go to and choose “Quick Collect.”

For the 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 that prisoner, the money might not get returned.
