Absences & Emergencies

Travel, Mileage & Other Expenses

Jurors are reimbursed for travel to and from the courthouse at a rate approved by the Supreme Court.


Pursuant to state law, you will be paid $30 a day for each day of jury service up to seven days; $50 a day for eight or more days of service. You may waive the right to compensation, which will help reduce the state's cost of operating the court system.

Telephone Fraud Involving Jury Duty

The judicial system does not contact people telephonically about jury service and ask for personal information such as your Social Security number, date of birth, or credit card numbers.

There have been reports of individuals contacting citizens in regard to jury duty and identifying themselves as court employees. These individuals say they are calling to verify names and Social Security numbers and then ask for credit card numbers; this could be an attempt to defraud you.

The Iowa courts do not contact people telephonically and ask for personal information as described above. If you receive such a call do not provide any personal or confidential information to these individuals, you should contact your local law enforcement agency or the clerk of court in your county.
