Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which serves to provide prisoners a bank type account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people can add funds to these accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can choose to send prisoners money by way of postal mail and will have to send the moneyh to the following address and follow the policies shows below:

The money have to be a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You should 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, during which the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have appropriate prisoner information provided the envelope has a valid return address. Personal checks and cash can’t be deposited so do not send checks or cash.
