Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money through the mail and have to send the money to the following address and follow the steps 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 the form of 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 placed on a 15-day hold, in which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have correct prisoner info but only if the envelope has a return address. Checks and cash cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account 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 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 go to www.westernunion.com.
  2. By phone with a credit/debit card: Call 1-800-634-3422 and choose phone prompt option 2.
  3. Online with a credit or debit card: Go to www.westernunion.com 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 inmate, the money might not be returned.
