UDW fought for and won this new option to speed up paychecks.

“I have five clients, which means I have to fill out and turn in five different paper timesheets,” said provider Norma Rea of Madera County. “Online timesheets will be less of a hassle.”
Providers in the first three counties to use the new system have reported positive experiences. Amy Cabarse, who cares for her father in Riverside County, got a chance to try the new system for the first time in June. She found using the electronic timesheet safe, secure and convenient.
“It’s very easy,” said Cabarse, “You don’t have to worry about losing your timesheet. You open up your laptop and it’s already there.”
Electronic timesheets became available in the first three counties in June, and will be rolling out statewide in the coming months. Stay updated at www.udwa.org/onlinetimesheets.
