Default Federal Probation vs State Probation

I just received 5 years of Probation for a Federal Case. I have been on and completed State probation before.

I know with State probation you can earn good time, for each month you complete without a violation you get some time off, does the same apply for Federal Probation?

No, but it may be possible to eventually have the 5 year term shortened by the court. It helps if your PO initiates the process, but you can also file a motion, with or without a lawyer. Usually a minimum of 1/2 of your probation/supervised release sentence must have been completed, and like everything else in the federal "justice" system, it depends on the judge who decides the case.
