Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit 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 postal mail and have to send the money to this 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 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 subject to a 15-day hold, and in this time the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender any funds that don’t have valid prisoner info if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and checks cannot be accepted for deposit 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 via one of these methods:
