UDW members have a new tool to help navigate the IHSS system—all in the palm of our hands. Our newest member benefit is a FREE app for our iPhones or Android phones that allows us to plan timesheets and avoid violations, get help with IHSS hours, contact local IHSS and UDW offices, check on paycheck status, sign up for direct deposit, access UDW member benefits, and so much more.
“Very helpful and I really like having the electronic union membership card among other features. Download it!”
– Heather Houston, caregiver, Sutter County
To get it, simply search your app store for ‘IHSS Help’ and download it onto your phone or visit www.udwa.org/ihss-help-app. You’ll need your UDW Member ID number to login to the app – which you can find on your UDW membership card or by calling the Member Benefits Center at 1-800-621-5016.
The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) will be implementing a change to the IHSS Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system beginning July 1, 2023.
