How to submit PSW BILLING*
*The following instructions on how to submit PSW billing are provided by DHS.
When do I need to submit PSW billing? When do I get paid?
There are typically two PSW billing periods each month. These are the 1st through the 15th, and the 16th through the last day of the month. As seen on the billing calendar:
Green indicates the due dates by which PSW’s need to have time sheets and mileage forms submitted to the brokerage.
Purple indicates the pay dates when checks are mailed or direct-deposited.
What do I need to fill out before submitting PSW billing to a brokerage?
PSW billing submissions must include the hours worked, progress notes, and signatures from both the employer of record and the PSW.
Unless the PSW has an approved exception in place, they must enter their hours and mileage (if billing for miles) into eXPRS before submitting their billing.
