FAQs on IHSS Pay Rates by County

Here are the most frequently asked questions about IHSS pay.

How are IHSS Hourly Rates Decided?

The IHSS hourly rate is determined by negotiations by the Service Employee International Union (SEIU) and the employer of record which is the Public Authority (PA) in each county.

IHSS hourly rates vary by county.

The State issues all checks for individual provider payments.

If the provider qualifies, the State withholds the applicable amounts for disability insurance and Social Security taxes.

Does IHSS provide Sick Pay?

Yes. The annual IHSS provider paid sick leave hours for the Fiscal Year 2021/2022 are 16 hours beginning July 1, 2021.

However, you can only request paid sick leave if you have earned paid sick leave.

Your sick leave balance is shown on your pay warrant.

There are two ways to request paid sick leave:

Option 1 – Submit a paper copy of the Sick Leave Request Form

To request paid sick leave, an IHSS provider must:

Complete the paper version of the IHSS Program Provider Sick Leave Request Form (SOC 2302).

Click here to download the form.

You can also obtain the SOC 2302 form through the CDSS website and print it, or receive a printed copy from your county IHSS office.

Option 2 –  Submit an electronic copy of the Sick Leave Request Form

Alternatively, you can also complete a paid sick leave request on the IHSS Electronic Services Portal (ESP).

If you have an account registered on the IHSS Electronic Services Portal website, you may fill out a request for sick leave electronically.

Rules around Taking a Sick Leave

If you are going to be using paid sick leave for a planned medical appointment, you must notify your recipient(s) at least 48 hours prior to using the sick leave.

However, if you need to use paid sick leave for an unplanned medical need, you must notify your recipient immediately or within two (2.0) hours prior to your start time.

Can an IHSS Provider get Vacation Pay?

No. As an IHSS provider, you may take a vacation, however, you will not be paid during the time you are not working for your Recipient.

IHSS pays only for the hours that you work.

If you plan to take a vacation, it’s important to give your Care Recipient ample time to make other arrangements while you will be away.

Will I get a W-2 from IHSS?

Yes, as an IHSS provider, you should expect to receive a Form W-2 by mail directly from the state at the end of the tax year.

If you did not receive your W2, you can request a duplicate online from the ESP portal.

Do I have to file taxes if I work for IHSS?

In January 2017, the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) began allowing IHSS and Waiver Personal Care Services (WPCS) providers to self-certify whether they live in the same home with the recipient for whom they provide services.

Under Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 2014-7, the wages received by WPCS providers who live with the recipient of those services are not considered part of gross income for purposes of Federal Income Tax (FIT).

On March 1, 2016, CDSS received a ruling from the IRS that IHSS wages received by IHSS providers who live in the same home with the recipient of those services are also excluded from gross income for purposes of FIT.

This ruling applies to State Income Tax (SIT) as well.

Additionally, if you received income from the In-Home Support Services (IHSS) program for providing care to someone you live with, you have the option to include or exclude all or none of that income as earned income on your tax return.

This may allow you to qualify for CalEITC and other tax credits.
