Annual Recertification Process

Each Employee/Family enrolled in the General Services Administration (GSA) Child Care Subsidy (CCS) Program must Recertify for benefits each year in order to validate their continued eligibility. The Recertification process requires specific information and documentation from you and your Child Care Provider. Incomplete Recertification packages cannot be processed and may result in a delay in processing your paperwork and payments to your Child Care Provider and/or removal from the program.

Employees have 30 days to complete and submit all documentation to the USDA once they receive their notification. Failure to submit all required documents by the established deadline will result in the Employee being removed from the program and financially responsible for all child care costs.
