Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary which serves to provide prisoners a bank-like account for inmate monies and for buying items not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may send funds 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 through postal mail and have to send those funds to this address and follow the policies listed below:

The money has to be 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, and in this time the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have appropriate prisoner information but only if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Personal checks and cash cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
