Unless he is on death row, he is ELIGIBLE to accumulate good time credits. If the offense was committed on or after September 01, 1987 (more than 30 years ago), then he is ALSO eligible to accumulate work-time credits.

If he is Line Class III, then he won't be accumulating those credits while in that status, but it is a status that is only earned through major disciplinary sanction. Staying out of trouble allows for a promotion back to a status that DOES accrue credits.

Even LWOP offenders will get credits as do those in Security Detention.
