Sign Up for Direct Deposit

Are you an IHSS provider? Do you have a bank account or UDW U.S. Bank Focus Card, and want to sign up to have your pay deposited into your account or onto your card? You have two options:

1. Sign up for direct deposit online through the state’s ETS website

Providers enrolling in direct deposit using the Online Direct Deposit Enrollment Service must:

  • Be registered on the CDSS IHSS ETS website

  • Have an open checking account, savings account, or a prepaid debit card like the UDW U.S. Bank Focus Card
  • Have your bank name, account number and the routing number available to key in during online enrollment

If you have questions about creating or accessing your Electronic Timesheet account or entering your direct deposit information online, you can call the Electronic Timesheet Help Desk during business hours at 1-866-376-7066 and select option 4.
