Personal Assistance Services (PAS)

Personal Assistance Services (PAS) allow individuals to enjoy the opportunity and independence of employment. PAS are non-medical services that help individuals who, because of targeted disabilities, require assistance to perform basic activities of daily living. Examples may include:

  • Assistance with removing and putting on clothing
  • Assistance with eating
  • Assistance with using the restroom

These services differ from services that help the individual perform job-related tasks or specific job functions. Individuals who wish to request PAS, should follow the procedures outlined in Personnel Bulletin 21-03 Processing Requests for Reasonable Accommodation for Individuals with Disabilities

The Department provides PAS to employees who, because of targeted disabilities, require such assistance during work hours or in order to participate in work-related travel—unless doing so would pose an undue hardship. DOI Personnel Bulletin 17-18 Personnel Assistance Services provides full guidance for these services.
