Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate money and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit money to prisoner’s Commissary accounts using 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 by way of the postal service and will have to send the money to the address below and follow the policies written below:

The funds have to be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold period, and during this period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender funds that do not have appropriate prisoner info but only if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Cash and checks cannot be accepted for deposit so don’t send any cash or checks.
