Inmate Money

Each state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank account for inmate money and for purchasing things not issued by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may add funds into these Commissary accounts with Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send inmates money by way of postal mail and must send it to the address below and follow the policies listed below:

The funds must be in the form of a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, and during this hold period the inmate will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have appropriate inmate information provided the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Cash and checks won’t be accepted so don’t send any cash or checks.
