Timesheet & Payroll Information
New! Electronic Services Portal (ESP)
IHSS Care Providers and IHSS Recipients can now access the California Department of Social Services' Electronic Services Portal to get real-time timesheet and payment status information?

And, by registering on the ESP, you will be able to:
• View your timesheet and payment statuses
• Enter and submit timesheets
• No longer mail paper timesheets
• Request additional timesheets
• Enroll in direct deposit
• Claim sick leave
The new website is accessible by smartphone, tablet, laptop or computer. All you need is internet access and your own personal email address.
If you need additional assistance with the ESP, please contact the Electronic Timesheet Help Desk at 1-866-376-7066 (select option 4)

What is the IHSS Public Authority and what do we do?
The Public Authority was established per State mandate to act as Employer of Record for In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Care Providers. The Public Authority negotiates with the Provider's Union SEIU 2015 to set wages, benefits and working conditions for the IHSS Care Providers. The Public Authority also maintains a Provider Registry to help the IHSS Recipients find Care Providers so they can remain in their home safely and independently.
IHSS Care Providers offer assistance to eligible aged, blind and disabled individuals to live safely and independently in comfort of their own homes. The IHSS provider is chosen by the client, and works in the client's home to do those tasks the client cannot do for themselves.
Our IHSS Care Provider Registry maintains a database of Care Providers that have been screened and trained by the Public Authority. The Provider Registry helps link IHSS recipients to providers. When an IHSS recipient asks for help to find a provider, the Public Authority matches providers in the Registry to the recipient's physical location, authorized tasks and work schedule. Since the recipient is the employer, the recipient will interview providers and make a decision on who they will hire. Recipients can also fire a provider at will.
