We need you to stand with us to support seniors, people with disabilities, and children

“Since 1997, I’ve worked as an unpaid caregiver for my family members, and I understand the importance of caregiving on a very personal level. 25 years later, you would think our state’s caregiving industry would be in a better position, but it’s actually harder to find a caregiver since COVID-19. Why? Because many who have […]

CDWA IP Tips Chinese

大家好,我叫 Rhonda,是 Bucoda 的一名 IP,SEIU 775 执行委员会成员,我是第一批转移到 CDWA 的 IP 中的一员。 过程本身并不困难,但我在其中学到了一些东西,我想这会让其他 IP 的过程变得更容易。 对于向 CDWA 的转移,以下是我的 3 条建议。 1 –注意查收电子邮件 CDWA 将给您发送大量电子邮件,第一封会告诉您如何开始这一过程,在过渡过程中还有其他电子邮件的说明,直至所有步骤完成。 请密切注意这些电子邮件,因为如果您错过了某个步骤或出现了错误,您可以通过这些电子邮件找到答案。 整个过程是在线完成的,电子邮件是您了解下一步应该做什么以及何时完成的方式,因此请密切关注它们。 请记住,如果您在这一过程中的任何阶段遇到问题,请联系 CDWA,电话:866-216-3065(粤语);866-216-1752(汉语普通话)。 2 –现在就准备好您的证件。 CDWA 会需要您提供驾照号码和汽车保险(如果您需要开车带客户出行),以及您的银行信息,用于薪资支付。如果可以的话,请现在就准备好这些。 可能最困难的部分就是处理 I-9 表格,也就是证明您能够在美国工作的表格。 您将需要一些特定证件,例如您的美国护照、永久居民卡(即绿卡),或者如果没有这些证件,您可以使用您的驾照和社会安全卡。 SEIU 775 的网站上有链接,上面列出了可用于 I-9 的所有证件列表。 您需要给每个证件拍照,并上传至 CDWA。 然后,您需要提供另一个人的电子邮件地址,此人应该能够验证您的身份。这可以是任何人,只要他/她有电子邮件地址并且可以为您在线签署文件。 所以现在就准备好这些证件,想一想谁可以验证您的身份,并确保填写 I-9 表格的每一部分。 3 –当您收到开始日期后,就完成了这一过程。 我经过了整个过程,并认为我已经完成了。但我意识到我还没有收到 CDWA 发来的告知我开始日期的电子邮件。我给他们打了电话,发现我少做了一个步骤! 幸好我还有时间完成。因此,请继续执行过程中的每个步骤,直到您收到带有您的开始日期的电子邮件。 而且,如果您认为自己已经完成,但没有收到电子邮件,请立即打电话给 CDWA,看看发生了什么事。 就是这些!
