Sacramento IHSS Benefits Information
Minimum Work Requirement: You must work and be paid for a minimum of 85 hours per month for three consecutive months. (You must continue to meet the minimum work requirement to remain eligible.)
Correct Completion of Timecards: Your timesheet must be completed correctly, without alterations or whiteout, signed by both Provider and Recipient and reflect accurately the number of hours worked for that recipient for each day during the pay period.
Timesheet Deadline: Timesheets are due on the 16th and 1st day of each month. Eligibility for health and dental benefits is based on a state report. Only the hours that you worked and were paid on time will appear on this report. If your timesheet is not received promptly after the close of each pay period, your worked hours will not show up on the report. Even if you worked 85 or more hours in a month, you will not be eligible for benefits unless your name and prior month’s hours appear on the state report.
Currently, enrollment in the health plan is at a maximum. Once eligible for the plan, you will be notified via mail and will be asked if you would like to be added to the waiting list. To be added, you must respond to this notice via mail. Currently, the approximate wait time is 30-36 months. When you approach the top of the waitlist you will be notified via mail.
