IHSS Care Recipient Approve Timesheets & Schedules


Timesheet approval

In order for your Care Provider to get paid on time, you need to:

  • Receive a timesheet (electronically or on paper) from your Care Provider every two weeks.
  • Review and approve the timesheet.

Electronic timesheets

Electronic timesheets will replace all paper timesheets in 2020.  If you are still using paper timesheets – don’t wait!  Switch now to speed up payments and avoid postage costs and timesheet errors. Learn more and enroll


Schedules for multiple Care Providers

If you have multiple Care Providers, you have the option of using a workweek agreement to keep track of your Care Providers' total hours.

  • Download Workweek Agreement Form SOC 2256: English | Español | 中文 | русский
  • Make sure the total number of hours in the agreement corresponds to your maximum weekly hours.
  • Send the completed and signed SOC 2256 to the IHSS county office.
  • You can always adjust a Care Provider's weekly work schedule, as long as they don't exceed their maximum weekly hours.

Learn more about workweek scheduling or call your IHSS social worker for help.
