How Long Does It Take to Get a Jury Duty Check?
Once you’ve completed your jury service, you may have to wait several weeks before getting paid your juror fees. This varies by state and county. For example, if you live in Erie County, Pa., your juror payment will be mailed to your home address within six to nine weeks of your service. In New York state, jurors should receive payment in four to six weeks. And, in Los Angeles County, jurors will get a check in the mail within a few days of completed service. To find out when you can expect to receive your juror compensation, you’ll need to contact the local or federal court system where you served.
Juror compensation varies significantly, as well — ranging from $4 per day to $60 per day. Federal jurors can receive up to $60 per day after serving 10 days on a trial. Some areas will also reimburse you for travel and other expenses. To find out what juror compensation you can expect, consult this state-by-state guide to juror fees.
