In addition, an inmate must be within the specific time frames as outlined below.
Inmates with non-advanceable dates must be within:
28 months of their earliest tentative release date for the community-based residential transition program (pre-work release)
19 months of their tentative release date or presumptive parole release date for center work assignment and community-based residential substance abuse program; or
14 months of their earliest tentative release date for work release

How does the Department account for the money earned while in work release?
The money inmates earn on work release is accounted for in this way:
Subsistence is 55% at all work release facilities.
10% of net pay goes toward restitution or court ordered payments.
10% of net pay goes to family assistance, including child support
10% of net pay is mandatory for the inmate’s savings account.
Up to $100 per week goes toward the inmate’s personal incidental, etc.
The remaining goes into the inmate’s general account.
