They get all the same privileges. Even Level 4 inmates get conjugal visits unless they have a committed a violent crime.
Don't forget they get tax returns with earned income credit no less, social security and more

Inmate's income. Amounts received for work performed while an inmate in a penal institution are not earned income for the earned income credit. This includes amounts received for work performed while in a work release program or while in a halfway house.

The thing about prison income is we're damned if we do and damned if we don't. Do we really want to release felons into society with no money, no jobs and no homes and expect them not to reoffend? Even if they don't reoffend, they'll go on public assistance so what's the point?
