Inmate Money

Every federal prison has a Commissary which was started to provide an account for inmate money and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add money into 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 to send prisoners money through the mail and must send funds to the following address and follow the steps given 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 kept for a 15-day hold period, in which the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have valid prisoner info but only if the envelope has a return address. Cash and checks can’t be accepted so do not send checks or cash.

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 by one of these methods:

  1. At a physical location using cash. In order to locate the closest agent, you can call 1-800-325-6000 or go to www.westernunion.com.

  1. Correct and valid 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
