I feel for you! I had jury duty for 2 months recently. I never got seated on a jury but I had to report 3 times. Yesterday, I was surprised to get a small check from the county for my time, I knew jury duty was paid but I wasn't expecting anything since I wasn't actually on a jury.
Hi Rhonda,Yes, we get paid by the state. It sounds like your pay works like ours. Every day that you are there whether you get put on a jury or not, you get paid. I get paid $40. per day but that is before Federal or State income taxes because it is reportable as income. Usually they pay you a few weeks after you finish in a lump sum check. It's a nice bonus and helps cover expenses.
Thank you for doing your civic duty. My mom served a couple of times on juries and found the process fascinating. She really was glad to learn that the system really does work.
Hi Rozy,You are welcome. The system has worked for years and hopefully will for many more.
Get as much rest as you can, and I hope things get back to normal for you.Do hope the jury duty case isn't too heartbreaking.
Hi Kathy,The next few weeks my life will be tiring but I can do it.
