Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary which serves to provide inmates a bank type account for inmate funds and for buying items not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can deposit funds to prisoner’s accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates money through the postal service and will have to send the moneyh to this address and follow the rules provided below:

The deposit have to be a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is best if you use a post office money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day holding period, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have appropriate inmate info but only if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and checks can’t be accepted for deposit so don’t send checks or cash.

  1. Sheree' says:

    I’m very disappointed in the professionalism of this prison. When I call I get the run around or put on hold and no one comes back on the line. Documentation is sent weeks earlier and when I call to enquire there is no concern as to how long its been gone; I only get, “it’s not here.” You are told one thing when you call, but if you wait a few minutes and call back you get a different answer (if it’s picked up). This facility really needs to step up it professionalism or maybe they need to hire new people.
