Do I have to submit a memorandum in support of my voucher?
If your voucher exceeds the statutory maximum for the type of representation, you must submit a CJA 26 Supplemental Information Statement explaining why the claim is an excess claim. If you do not submit this form, your voucher will be returned to you unprocessed. If the claim is under the statutory limits, there is no need for a CJA 26.
Do I have to supply my social security number?
Yes. To process a voucher for payment, the Administrative Office must have your social security number (16B). The taxpayer or law firm ID number (16C) is required only if you checked "Yes" in 16A. All checks will be made out to you, not the law firm. If your firm is incorporated (16A), a 1099 will be provided to the firm, not to you.
Do I include claims for transcripts on my CJA 20 voucher?
No. All claims for transcripts must be submitted on a CJA 24 voucher.

e-Juror If I complete my questionnaire online, do I submit the paper form to the court?
