Emergency Regulation & Benefits of using PPL

  • CA Department of Developmental Services (DSS) issued Emergency Regulations stating that to receive federal funds for voucher services Regional Centers must contract with Financial Management Service (FMS) providers.

  • Public Partnerships (PPL) is the FMS provider for the Golden Gate Regional Center Participant-Directed Program

  • Benefits of using PPL:

    • PPL withholds all necessary taxes and files them with the state and federal governments

    • PPL issues annual W-2 statements to your workers

    • Customer Service Staff available in multiple languages

    • Online timesheet and invoice submission with instant feedback

    • 24/7 access to timesheet and invoice statuses through PPL’s Web Portal

      .

Differences in Voucher Program vs PPL

  • Vendorized individuals are set up as Employers

  • Worker timesheets and invoices are submitted to and paid out by PPL

    • PPL will assist you with resolving any pending timesheets or invoices

  • PPL takes care of all payroll and tax duties on behalf of the Employer including workers compensation and year-end W-2s

  • PPL tracks employer and worker progress throughout the enrollment process

    .


Program guidelines

Program Guidelines

  • Service cannot begin through PPL until both the Employer and Worker are “Good to Go” and the Social Worker updates the IPP and SANDIS authorization.

    • Employers will receive a copy of the revised IPP and authorization

  • Workers are not allowed to work more than 40 hours per week or 8 hours per day (no Over Time)

  • Timesheets need to be submitted within 30 days from the date worked
