Can you be paroled in the Federal?? Or do they just give credit for good behavior or whatnot??

No, no parole. 85% minus what little "good time" they do give. If lucky, the inmate may be able to go to a halfway house for a few months before release to supervision. If I've got that wrong, someone will correct me

The way to calculate federal good time, on any sentence longer than one year, is 47 days of regular good time for each 12 months of the sentence. If a pending bill ever becomes law, it will add an additional week of good time, up to 54 days/year of the sentence. The "release date" shown on the bop inmate locator will be the total sentence minus maximum regular good time.
https://www.bop.gov/inmateloc/

The only program that can possibly result in additional time off of a sentence is RDAP, the residential drug abuse program.

Community corrections time, if any, in either a half way house or home confinement is decided by the unit team case manager. During your CC time, you will still be in bop custody, just not in a prison.

Minor correction...there are still a small handful of offenders in the BOP facilities who have sentences that pre-date the elimination of parole. So at the most basic level, yes, there are indeed some in the federal system who can be paroled. However, that number is very small and if someone is asking, then the sentence is new enough that the answer will likely be no as it relates to the OP.

Prisoners in bop custody who are serving sentences for Washington DC crimes (and probably Puerto Rico/Guam, etc. too) are still eligible for federal parole. Otherwise, Congress eliminated parole for federal defendants convicted of crimes committed after November 1, 1987 in the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984,
