Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that serves to provide prisoners a bank-like account for prisoner money and for buying items not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

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

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send prisoners money through postal mail and must send it to this address and do so in accordance with the rules shows below:

The money has to be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold, during which the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that don’t have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has a valid return address. Personal checks and cash won’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
