Inmate Money

Every state correctional institution has a Commissary that was created to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate money and for buying items not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may deposit funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts with Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds by way of the postal service and must send those funds to the following address and follow the directions shows below:

The deposit 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 advisable to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, in which the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back any funds that do not have valid prisoner info provided the envelope has an adequate return address. Checks and cash will not be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send any checks or cash.
