Appendix K Flexibility Update!

As a reminder, the pandemic-related flexibility that allows reimbursement to spouses, or parents of children under age 18 for providing personal care services to waiver eligible consumers will end on February 29, 2024. For more information, please visit: https://dmas.virginia.gov/for-providers/long-term-care/waivers/legally-responsible-individuals/.

NOTE: If you are not a parent/step-parent/legal guardian of a consumer that is a minor nor a spouse of the consumer, this change does not apply to you. No action is needed.

VA 2023 W2 Reminder

Notice! If an attendant had wages in 2023 but had no taxable income or taxes, they will not receive a W-2. Because there is nothing to report your W2 would be blank. The IRS does not accept blank W2s.

Please note that all PPL email addresses have changed. Our emails have changed from ending in @pcgus.com to ending in @pplfirst.com. Please change the end of any email you have on file for us to @pplfirst.com or check our Contact Us page to ensure your email will reach us. 

 

Unemployment in the Commonwealth of Virginia

As an attendant in the Consumer-Directed Services Program, unemployment taxes are paid by your fiscal employer agent (F/EA) on behalf of your Consumer-Directed Employer to the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC). Should an attendant meet the rules set by the VEC, you may be eligible to apply for unemployment.

Questions? Feel free to visit the VEC website for more information at https://www.vec.virginia.gov/unemployed. They can also be reached at 866-832-2363; 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday – Friday. As a gentle reminder, Public Partnerships, LLC (PPL) is your F/EA; your employer is the Employer of Record (EOR) for whom you work
