Default Extra phone minutes for federal inmates during the holidays?

I know that inmates will get 400 minutes in Dec. (instead of 300) as a 'gift' from the BOP.
a) do they get all 400 at the beginning of the month?
b) do people in the SMU get them? *Specifically, I'm inquiring about folks in the SMU in Lewisburg.

The 300 minutes are posted on his regular day, and the extra 100 minutes are posted on Nov 1 and Dec 1. I don't know about folks in the SMU, but if his phone access is limited, it won't matter how many minutes he receives.

Here's the Lewisburg SMU program statement. The answer may be included.

Hi the extra 100 minutes may be given to SMU inmates but most inmates in SMU are on restricted phone allowance so it makes no difference. For most SMU inmates its one 15 minute call per month.Minutes do not rollover so anyunused minutes are lost.
