Jurors receive nominal compensation for each day that they physically report for jury duty service, based upon rates established by the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Jurors receive $9 per day for each of the first three days of their service and $25 per day for each day thereafter. Jurors also receive 17 cents per mile for mileage reimbursement for one round-trip commute per day between the juror's residence of record and the Judicial Center.
You will receive a debit card the day you arrive for service. It takes approximately one week after your service is complete for the funds to be loaded on the card. Please follow the instructions in the debit card pamphlet to activate your card. If you have any questions about the card, contact CourtFunds cardholder support located in the debit card pamphlet.
While jury service may be inconvenient and a hardship in certain situations, it is an extremely important civic duty. Without citizens willing to serve as jurors, our system of justice would not exist. Most jurors find the experience to be educational and rewarding.
