Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary that was started to provide a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can send money into these Commissary accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates funds in postal mail and must send money to the following address and follow the rules listed below:

The deposit must be in a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and in this time the inmate will not get the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that don’t have appropriate inmate information if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Personal checks and cash will not be accepted for deposit so do not send checks or cash.

  1. Person of Good Character says:

    When I visit I feel comfortable, but I do not like the behavior of some of the CO’s. When a few of them are together, they banter and joust with each other. They left me akwardly waiting and standing as they goofed about and then one CO snapped at me for ID. The CO’s should be respectful of ALL visitors ! They talk to each other and use words to each other like: “It’s just like the hood”. Well…NO, it’s not just like the “hood”. You are an officer and not an inmate and that behavior demeans all the CO’s and is disrespectful to the visitors. I show respect to the CO’s and they need to respect the visitors. I met 3 nice CO’s, polite and respectful….so they are not all like that. When there are a few together, it seems to bring out the joking and goofing around.
    I was “randomly selected” for a drug ion test and the room they brought me to had a few CO’s sitting around a table and “yukking it up”. That was distasteful. I followed the rules and took the ion test (no problem). The CO who selected me was respectful and was just doing his job (properly). SUMMARY: The CO’s, in the presence of any visitor, need to show respect and be careful about bantering about with each other and the words they use in ear-shot of the visitor. I know the job can be tedious and boring at times, but please respect the visitors. You never know who that visitor is….maybe it’s a high ranking DOCS employee testing your manners !

  2. Deborah M**re says:

    I am fairly new to the prison system and its rules. I agree about the disrespect of visitors. We are treated like prisoners on intake. It is already demeaning enough to have a loved one in a situation that got them there; then to have the employees of the prison treat you with disrespect just adds to the frustration and pain.
    My biggest frustration to date has been the intake of packages. I found and printed the allowed list for packages and followed it to the T, but when I got to the window more than 1/2 of my first packages (food and other) were disallowed for one reason or another. Food is especially tough; just because the inmate can purchase in the commissary, shouldn’t mean they HAVE to if the family can bring it in the packages up to 35 lbs per month. The “hermetically sealed” clause is horrible because they don’t know what it means apparently. It means air tight. There are foods that are air tight like the Motts apple sauces, Doles fruit and jello and pudding cups….but because someone can supposedly undo the plastic seal and reglue it??????Please show me once that that has been done. this past visit, I brought in Pepperidge farm 12 grain bread like I had the previous three months, and was turned down. ..because it was “slap pasted ….not hermetically sealed” It was factory sealed and double bagged just like the others. When I told her it had been accepted for the last three times, I was told” This is MY post! I don’t know what anyone else does when I am not here, but this is not allowed!” I then asked her what kind of bread had the seal she would approve, she stated “Pepperidge farms”. I pointed out to her that was what the bread she just turned down was…she said there are other kinds of seals they use, which is simply not true. I have volunteered to work with the prison intake person to come up with a complete list of disallowed items as well as expanding/correcting the existing list of allowable items but have received no response. So I guess, commissary money PLUS monthly packages are what is expected. Very expensive for the families of the incarcerated. Anyone know of an prisoner advocate for change for Bedford Hills?
