Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add funds to inmate’s Commissary accounts using the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can to send inmates money in the postal service and have to send the money to this address and follow the steps given below:

The funds must be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to 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, during which the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that don’t have appropriate prisoner information if the envelope it was sent it has a return address.
