Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide a bank account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can send funds to these accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send inmates money by way of postal mail and will have to send the money to this address and do so in accordance with the rules listed below:

The funds must be in a money order 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 that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, during which the prisoner will not have access to the deposit. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that do not have valid inmate info but only if the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Checks and cash cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send cash or checks.
