Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which was created to provide a bank type account for inmate money and for buying things not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources can deposit funds to inmate’s Commissary accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send inmates funds by way of the postal service and must send those funds to this address and do so in accordance with the steps written below:

The funds must 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. You are advised to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day hold, and during this period the inmate will not have access to the depsoit. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have correct prisoner information provided the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and checks can’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send cash or checks.
