In-Home Supportive Services Live Scan Fingerprinting

Effective November 1, 2009, California enacted legislation requiring the Live Scan Fingerprinting of all In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) providers. The new rules, designed to prevent fraud, require caregivers who are either new to the program or have taken on a new client to complete an enrollment form, criminal background check and orientation session before they can get paid from the State. The new law is a push by California to reduce fraud in the IHSS system.

Live Scan Fresno provides Live Scan Fingerprinting on an appointment and walk-in basis and would be happy to take care of your fingerprinting needs.


How does the process work?

Step 1. Complete the IHSS Program Provider Enrollment Form (SOC 426) and return it in person to the county IHSS Office or IHSS Public Authority. If you have already completed this step you need to contact your County to get the proper Live Scan Form for your county.

Step 2.You need to be fingerprinted and go through a criminal background check by the California Department of Justice. The county IHSS Office or Public Authority will give you instructions on how to get fingerprinted when you turn in the completed and signed SOC 426.

Step 3. Come to Live Scan Fresno to complete your Live Scan Fingerprinting background check.
