IHSS Providers

The following information is intended to help prospective In-Home Supportive Service (IHSS) providers navigate the process.

Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit is an optional way for IHSS providers to receive their IHSS payroll checks.  With Direct Deposit, the IHSS provider’s payroll check is deposited directly into the provider’s checking or savings account instead of being sent through the mail.  IHSS payroll paychecks can be deposited into a provider’s account at a bank, savings and loan or credit union. 

Each provider enrolled in Direct Deposit will receive a Direct Deposit Remittance Advice that will look like, and contain the same information as, the Statement of Earnings (pay stub) that provider’s currently receive attached to their IHSS payroll check.  With the pay stub providers will also receive a new timesheet for the next pay period.

Direct Deposit will eliminate having provider’s paychecks lost in the mail or stolen from their mailbox.  Additionally, providers may have access to their money sooner because they don’t have to wait for the check to come in the mail.
