Work Share Update: Salary Advances

We understand you may be experiencing financial hardship since there have been delays receiving the additional $600 weekly payments, as well as the weekly unemployment benefits you should be receiving as part of the Work Share program.

Please be aware that, if needed, you can apply for a salary advance from the District. 

If you are in need of a salary advance please contact:

Work Share Update: Problems with Home Financing?

If you are financing or refinancing a home and you have concerns about how the Work Share pay reduction will impact your mortgage financing, the first step you should take is to have your lender call the The Work Number at 1-800-367-2884. They will need the PPS employer code (10999) and your social security number to access employment information. 

PPS has assured us that they have been reporting no reduction in salary level so there should not be any problems. If, however, you are experiencing any difficulties please contact Penny Robertson at probertson1@pps.net You may need to request that you be taken out of the Work Share program to guarantee that your mortgage financing is not jeopardized.
