Default Can the earn reduced time?

Does any one know if getting into programs and/or working while it federal prison, will they reduce some of the time? My boyfriend was telling me that in certain other places if you're into something they could take off like 5 days a month, etc. Does any one know if that is available in the federal prison system?

I don't think they do since it is a federal charge not a state charge.

In federal prison, if serving more than 12 months, the inmate can earn 47 days per year off their sentence if he/she stays out of trouble and doesn't lose any of it. Some inmates in RDAP (the residential drug and alcohol program) get more time off their sentence but that's the only program that reduces the sentence other than the regular good time.
