Where can I access my pay stubs/W-2’s?

Why can’t I enter my hours into SpokeChoice?

There are several reasons you might not be able to enter your hours on SpokeChoice. Possible reasons could include: your client’s authorization has expired and a new auth is not in yet; you are trying to enter a shift that would put you over the client’s weekly allotment of that service; the shift you are trying to enter would put you over your weekly max of workable hours; or your shift may overlap with another shift already entered (by you or another provider). If in doubt, call your area manager.

When are timesheets due and when will I be paid?

Billing periods are the 1st – 15th with time sheets due by 10 am on the 16th; and the 16th – last day of the month with time sheets and any reports due by 10 am on the 1st of the following month. The due dates are always the same regardless of weekends or holidays. Here is a list of scheduled paydays assuming you have submitted your paperwork properly and on time.

How do I handle different member, guardian and area manager requests?

My member’s guardian is asking me to do things that are different than what my area manager told me. What do I do?

This is often simply a misunderstanding. First reassure the guardian that you are there to help but clarification is needed before you act on the request. Then reach out to your area manager and go over the details of what is being asked. Your area manager can connect with you and the guardian to explain why something may or may not be appropriate. Communication is key. When in doubt, ask.

May I work more hours with another client?

Yes! You may work up to 40 hours a week by working with additional clients who have a complimentary schedule to your current client. Contact your area manager for the most up to date opportunities.

How do I get my home certified?

Contact your area manager. We will submit a request to the state for a representative to come and inspect your home. Be ready by printing off the life safety inspection checklist available here.

What do I do if I suspect that someone has filed unemployment on my behalf?
