Oregon Developmental Disability Services (ODDS) is transitioning payroll vendors from TNT to PCG Public Partnerships (aka, “Public Partnerships, LLC” or “PPL”). This is also known as the “Financial Management Agent Services” (FMAS), formerly called “Fiscal Intermediary Services” (FI Services).
This transition will affect people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who use self-directed services. These individuals, or the person who employs Personal Support Workers (PSWs) on their behalf, will need to get enrolled with PPL in order to avoid any disruption in paying their PSWs. All PSWs will also need to enroll with PPL in order to continue to be paid for the services they provide.
To make this transition as seamless as possible, there will be a number of in-person information sessions held across the state, as well as live and recorded webinars addressing this change and how it affects certain stakeholder groups.
Enrollment Info and Help Sessions for Employers and PSWs:
During the month of November, there will be a series of sessions throughout the state so people can receive hands-on assistance enrolling with PPL. Employers and PSWs are encouraged to attend together and bring their PPL Welcome Packets to these sessions to get enrolled on-site.
At these in-person sessions, PSWs and Employers who attend can:
- … get more information on the transition from TNT to PPL.
- … get assistance with completing the PPL payroll vendor enrollment packets they have received from DHS / PPL (they need to bring their packets with them to the session).
- … turn in their completed packets directly to PPL.
