Inmate Money

Every prison has a Commissary which was started to provide inmates an account for inmate money and for buying items not issued to inmates by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add funds to prisoner’s accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send prisoners money through the mail and must send funds to the following address and do so in accordance with the rules provided below:

The deposit have to be in the form of 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold period, and during this period the prisoner will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have valid prisoner information if the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Checks and cash cannot be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send any cash or checks.
