Anyone may deposit money to these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send inmates funds by way of postal mail and have to send it to this address and do so in accordance with the directions shows below:

The money 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 advisable to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold, and in this time the prisoner will not get the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return any funds that do not have valid prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address.
