INFORMATIONAL WEBINARS ON THE "ELECTRONIC TIMESHEET SYSTEM" FOR IHSS OR WPCS PARTICIPANTS

Due to a federal mandate, providers and beneficiaries participating in the IHSS or WPCS programs will soon have to submit and approve their timesheets electronically.  In some parts of the San Gabriel Valley, this requirement will be in effect as early as September 1, 2019. 

SG/PRC wants to help our families alleviate their concerns by being a host site to the following informational webinars that the State of California will be broadcasting to the community in September:

  • Spanish Session - Monday 9/16/2019, 10 a.m. -12 p.m.
  • English Session - Monday 9/30/2019, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

This is a great opportunity for SG/PRC community members that already participate in IHSS or WPCS programs to attend and learn as a group.
