Social Service Payment System

The Department of Social and Health Services uses SSPS to pay for a variety of services that facilitate employment, increase independence, support families, and protect children.

SSPS provides authorization and payment processing for services delivered to DSHS clients. This mission-critical system is used by more than 2,000 case workers from Economic Services Administration and Children's Administration to pay over 23,000 social service providers more than $600 million annually in services to more than 100,000 clients.


********SSPS PROVIDER PORTAL********

SSPS is proud to announce the launch of a new web-based portal for DSHS and DEL providers paid through SSPS. 

Upon launch, this portal will allow you to view:

  • Details of your SSPS Provider File
  • A history and details of all payments made to you from January 2008 forward
  • Remittance Advices (RAs) from April 2013 forward (which can be downloaded or printed)
  • A list of your current Authorizations and those for the past 12 months

You will also be able to send email messages from our Contact Us page to our Customer Service team as well as other units involved in making your payments.

Future features will include viewing and downloading of Social Service Notices and Invoices as well as an option to claim your SSPS invoice on-line. 

We’ll be rolling out access over the course of the next few months (March – August).  When it’s your turn, you will receive a letter with specific information you will need to get registered.  If you have already received your announcement letter in the mail, click on this link to get started: How to access the new SSPS Provider Portal.




Tax documents (W-2 and 1099 statements) will be mailed from the Office of Accounting Services by January 31st, 2017. To avoid mailing delays, please be sure to have your case worker or local DSHS office update your address if you have moved recently.

W-2 and 1099 statements are not available online or electronically at this time. For more information about taxes and contact information for the Tax Desk, please select the menu option on the left for Tax Info.
