Calling regarding Good time
« on: August 11, 2016, 08:21:50 PM »
My loved one is currently at Vandalia. He is wanting me to call Springfield everyday to question about good time. He has been told that it will help. Has anyone called and does it help? Any advice would be great! Thank you :)

It won't do you any good, they say right on the IDOC website that they won't give family members any information.

 If he is eligible, they will give him the paperwork he needs with the time he is going to get, 1-6 months.

He doesn't need to fill anything out, if he is eligible, he will be giving paperwork showing how much time he will get. He just has to wait to see if that happens.
