Inmate Money

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

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may add money to these accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money through the postal service and have to send money to the address below and do so in accordance with the policies shows below:

The funds have to be in a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, during which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that don’t have correct prisoner info but only if the envelope it was sent it has an adequate return address.

  1. The Real Queen says:

    This place is full of bad attitudes. I feel personally you should leave your situations at the door and pick up on your way out. Some officers abuse their authority because they know their superiors are going to support them. Not all CO’S are bad. But the good must suffer. These people should also be required to wear body cameras with audio. My loved one only prays to get completely away from this place. This facility still put their hands on these offenders. This should be stopped asap. Mr. Leblanc should take a ride and pop up on a visit to see what’s really going on at this facility. God bless and keep these offenders out of harm’s way. Amen
