Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates a bank type account for inmate monies and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add funds to prisoner’s Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners funds through postal mail and must send money to the address below and follow the directions given below:

The funds must be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, and in this time the inmate will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return to the sender money orders that don’t have appropriate prisoner information provided the envelope it was sent it has a valid return address. Cash and checks cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so do not send any cash or checks.
