The payroll process for In-Home Supportive Services workers varies from state to state based on the delivery model, according to a report for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. IHSS payroll models may be client-directed models or professionally managed services.
The typical payroll process for an IHSS worker involves the completion of a time sheet provided by the administrative authority through an IHSS social worker, according to the Public Authority for In-Home Supportive Services in San Diego. A worker fills in a time sheet for the number of hours in a month spent caring for a client and submits it to the applicable IHSS payroll processing center. The time sheet may need to be validated or authorized by the client in the case of a client-directed IHSS model or by the hiring agency in the case of a professional management model, reports the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
An IHSS home-care provider typically receives monthly payment in the form of a check or direct deposit after the time sheets are processed, according to the Department of Social Services in California. The pay stub provider also sends the worker a new time sheet for the next month or period.
