Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank-like account for prisoner funds and for buying items not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can deposit money into these accounts using Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds by way of postal mail and have to send money to this address and do so in accordance with the policies shows below:

The deposit must be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’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 processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold, and in this time the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that don’t have appropriate inmate info provided the envelope has a valid return address. Checks and cash won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send any cash or checks.
