That's a rumor....the same rumor goes around in most state DOC's and the BOP from year to year since the beginning of time. Wish it were true. Maybe it will be someday.

Yes, the First Step Act was signed into law December 21st 2018 and here we are, nine and a half months later and most people still haven’t received their additional week of good time.....

If BOP can’t solve simple math, 7 days times years sentenced, I seriously doubt they’ll start with something as “complicated” as calculating percentage. Sorry, it’s a rumor.

Yes, you must complete roughly 66% of your sentence for the senior folks. They have released over 2100 folks under the First Step Act in 2019, with more to follow, I assume some of them were seniors under the First Step Act. But who knows??
