Frequently Asked Questions

When does the JRJ service obligation begin?

Ordinarily, the effective date of the beneficiary’s obligation to remain employed for 3 years as a qualifying “prosecutor” or “public defender” begins on the date that the beneficiary first enters into duty (as such qualifying “prosecutor” or “public defender”) after executing the service obligation agreement. The effective date of any service agreement subsequently entered into by the beneficiary (pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §3797cc-21(e) (“Additional agreements”)) will be the day following the expiration of the prior service obligation. Beneficiaries may not credit any service as a public defender or prosecutor prior to execution of the agreement toward the service obligation.
