How much and when do I get paid?

Currently, jurors are paid $12.50 for a half day and $25 for a full day on the first day of service; and for each subsequent day of service, $20 for a half day and $40 for a full day, they serve either on a case or in the assembly room while available to be assigned to a case, plus 54.5 cents per mile, round trip, for mileage (MCL 600.1344). 

Checks for jury service are computed at the completion of your service week are mailed to you at your home address. Checks should be received within two weeks after you complete service. Contact your local jury office if you have not received compensation or have questions.
