How Soon After Jury Service Do You Receive Payment?

Jurors usually receive check payments for jury duty within weeks after their service. The number of weeks varies among district courts, ranging from one week after service begins to five weeks after service ends.

For the Southern District of Florida Federal Court, payments for jury service are mailed out as checks every week, according to the United States District Court website. For the Eastern District of Arkansas District Court, the checks are mailed out every Friday. In Hawaii, the courts issue the checks in the middle and at the end of each month, with jurors receiving their checks about four to five weeks after their service, explains the Hawaii State Judiciary.
