Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary which was created to provide inmates an account for prisoner funds and for purchasing things not issued by the prison.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can add money to prisoner’s Commissary accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds through postal mail and will have to send those funds to this address and do so in accordance with the policies provided below:

The funds have to be in the form of 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 postal money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day holding period, during which the inmate will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will return money orders that do not have correct prisoner information provided the envelope it was sent it has a return address. Checks and cash cannot be deposited so do not send any cash or checks.

  1. Tammie R says:

    The visitation process is “overly” time consuming. On Saturdays the visiting time was Noon – 2:30 pm. We arrived 30 minutes before noon and did NOT get in to visit until 1:30 pm. That left a total time of ONE hour to visit and get refreshments etc. That is so unsatisfactory. Please contact me to address this concern because I believe it is unlawful on the part of the prison. Some of us have arrived even an hour before visitation and STILL do not get our whole allotted time for visitation. Some of us also travel very far for these visits. The Staff that does the processing procedure are not at all concerned about this issue either or if they are, they don’t let us know they are. It’s very disrespectful and this should change asap. I can be reached at (330) 333-3*** as well.

    Thank you,
    Tammie R
