Once you are activated as an IHSS provider, you'll be sent a letter in the mail with your provider number. 

If you have an IHSS Recipient that you would like to work for, please fill out the following form and return it to our office. 

We recommend all providers enroll in eTimesheets, a portal for IHSS Providers and Recipients, for all of your payroll needs. You can fill out timesheets, print paycheck stubs, set up direct deposit, and more. Providers that do not sign up for eTimesheets will automatically be enrolled in the Telephonic Timesheet System. Please feel free to contact us if you need assistance enrolling in eTimesheets.
