Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that was created to provide an account for inmate monies and for buying items not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add money to inmate’s 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 by way of postal mail and will have to send funds to this address and do so in accordance with the directions listed below:

The funds must be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the deposit. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that do not have appropriate inmate information if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Checks and cash cannot be accepted for deposit so do not send checks or cash.
