Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary which was started to provide inmates a bank account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued to inmates by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds by way of postal mail and have to send it to this address and do so in accordance with the steps listed below:

The funds have 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 U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold period, during which the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that don’t have correct prisoner info provided the envelope has a valid return address. Checks and cash won’t be deposited so don’t send any cash or checks.
