Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary which was created to provide a bank account for prisoner funds and for buying items not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can deposit funds into these accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates funds by way of the mail and have to send funds to this address and follow the directions listed below:

The deposit has to be 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold, and during this period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have appropriate inmate information if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send checks or cash.
