Default Additional 100 minutes for phone call during Holiday month

Hi all, since Thanksgiving and Xmas coming soon, on the BOP handbook did mention that will give each inmate additional 100 minutes for their phone usage. Can anyone let me know how do they count the additional minutes? Thank you very much!

The extra 100 minutes (and $50.00 extra commissary spending limit) are added to their remaining phone time on Nov. 1 and Dec.1. The regular date for switching to the next month's limits is based on their bop inmate ID number. The 5th digit, times 3, plus one (xxxxX-xxx), so minutes are added twice in those months.

Since there is no carryover of unused limits (phone and commissary spending) I imagine the extra 100 minutes will expire on Nov. 30 and Dec. 31.

Thank you for your reply. When you say for those 100 minutes added twice at those months. Is that mean they give first 50 mins for 11/1-11/15 (my husband's 5th digit is 5, so re set on 16th), and give another 50 mins for 11/16-11/30?

I wondered that as well. My husband validates on the 13th. So does he get from Nov 13- Dec 31 to use the time?

Please re-read what fbopnomore posted.
