FAQ No. 8
Question: 8. Will I be paid for jury service?
Answer: We will pay you a juror attendance fee of $40.00 for each day you are required to and do, in fact, report for jury duty on time. Additionally, we will reimburse you for mileage in the amount of $0.50 per mile, round-trip, from your home to the courthouse.

We issue checks for juror attendance from the court’s financial department in Sacramento on a biweekly basis. Please allow an additional five (5) days for mail delivery.

Federal employees receive attendance fees on their regularly scheduled day(s) off only and must inform the Jury Clerk in writing of their off-duty status to receive any attendance fees.
