This information is for individuals in Home-Based Services and Supports (HBS) who hire their own workers and want to change their fiscal/employer agents who pay their workers(F/EAs).
Process and Procedure
- Individuals or their representatives may change F/EAs before the start of any fiscal quarter but may do so only once per calendar year. The previous procedure was to allow the changing of an F/EA only during the last quarter of the calendar year.
- To change F/EAs, individuals or representatives must send the Fiscal/Employer Agent Transfer Request (docx) to the new F/EA and work with the new F/EA to complete all necessary enrollments for the employer and employee(s). The contact information for the two HBS F/EAs is provided below.
- When a request is initiated, the transfer form must be faxed or mailed to the new F/EA two months before the beginning of the next quarter.
- Completed enrollment packets must be received by the new F/EA one month prior to the beginning of the next quarter.
- Because payroll is issued two weeks after services are provided, the new F/EA will issue the second payroll of the new quarter. If questions concerning payroll arise, contact the issuing F/EA.
- Changes are made at the start of a new quarter to ensure the accurate reporting of taxes.
