Martha Stewart has been assigned her official inmate number – 55170-054 – according to a posting on the Bureau of Prisons' Web site and reported by New York's Daily News.
Though the domestic diva, 63, has yet to be assigned to where she will be incarcerated, she has been ordered to begin her 5-month term on Oct. 8 for her conviction on conspiracy, obstruction of justice and other charges related to an ImClone Systems stock sale.

Stewart, who will continue to be covered by Martha Stewart Living's benefit plans while in prison, also is eligible for annual bonuses of 55-150 percent of her base salary, to be paid while she is serving the five-month home-confinement portion of her sentence, the company said.
In addition, she will be paid $100,000 a year for "non-accountable" expenses; has already received $200,000 "in consideration of the continued services of the founder ... "; and will be paid at least $500,000 a year for use of her properties for TV and magazine shoots.
