Effective July 1, 2022, all IHSS and WPCS providers are required to receive their paycheck by Direct Deposit.
Direct deposit is the way you will receive your IHSS/WPCS paycheck.
With direct deposit your IHSS/WPCS paycheck is deposited directly into your checking or savings account, or onto a pay card of your choice, instead of being mailed to you through the U.S. Post Office.
A pay card is a reloadable card you can use for direct deposit and to make purchases and withdrawals.
Please visit the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) Direct Deposit webpage to learn more.
