Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was started to provide an account for prisoner money and for purchasing things not provided by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by 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 it to the following address and follow the policies 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 have to be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should 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, during which the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Checks and cash can’t be accepted so do not send cash or checks.

    I have been to Seagoville Federal Prison with my 10 year old daughter so that she may visit her dad. I did not know what to expect the first time I went and I was concerned about how my daughter would feel after seeing her dad in a controlled environment. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and the beautiful grounds. It looked more like a nice college campus or university than a prison. The check in you remove your shoes fill out
    visiting form and walk through a metal detector and the guard takes your licence. You are allowed to take in $20 in quarters for the vending machines. It creates a little more relaxed setting then just sitting. You may visit with your family member privately in a big room with rows of chairs. It was amazing to see my husband again after he had been incarcerated. My little girl was able to bond with her father and it put a big smile on her face.
    It wasn’t at all like I thought with burly prison guards and rough looking prisoners that may be frightening. It was clean the guards were courteous and the visit was satisfying. We stayed for several hours holding hands and just catching up.

  2. How long does it take to get approved for visitation ? And how will I know I have been approved?
