Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources 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 have to send money to this address and follow the policies 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 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 are advised to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, and during this period the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that don’t have valid prisoner info if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Cash and checks will not be accepted so do not send cash or checks.

Via Western Union Quick Collect Program: Prisoner’s friends and family are also able to send prisoners money with Western Union’s Quick Collect Program. Money sent to a prisoner using the Western Union Quick Collect Program can be sent using one of these methods:

  1. At a physical location using cash. In order to locate the closest agent, you should call 1-800-325-6000 or visit
  2. On the phone with a credit/debit card: Call 1-800-634-3422 and select phone prompt option 2.
