Enrollment information for personal support workers through the Office of Developmental Disabilities Services
Personal support workers help children and adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities who receive Medicaid in-home services through the Office of Developmental Disabilities Services. To qualify to be a personal support worker, an individual must be 18 years old or older; pass a background check; and legally be able to work in the United States. The enrollment process begins by visiting a local Community Developmental Disabilities Program (CDDP) or brokerage to complete the required paperwork and submit a background check. You will also need to participate in a mandatory orientation available online or in-person.
If you would like, you can download the forms before you go to the local CDDP or brokerage or you can get them while at the office:
Once you are hired by an individual, you will complete a Form W-4 (Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate) and I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification.
