IHSS Provider Resources

Once you have become an IHSS provider, the following are resources intended to help you as you provide services to your IHSS recipient:

Electronic Services Portal (ESP)

IHSS Timesheet Information

Live-In IHSS/WPCS Providers

Beginning January 2017, providers now have the option to self-certify living arrangements to exclude IHSS/WPCS wages from federal income tax and state tax by completing and submitting appropriate forms. For more information and forms, go to the Live-In Provider Self-Certification Information webpage.

IHSS Authorized Tasks

IHSS Consumer and Provider Job Agreement

IHSS Provider Orientation

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.
