Who is a Mandated Reporter?
Most people who work with elders or disabled adults are mandated reporters under state law. To determine if you may be a mandated reporter, please review the Welfare and Institution Code.
As of January 1, 2022, legislation has been enacted that changes the age of an Elder to age 60 and over and a Dependent Adult to ages 18-59. The California Department of Social Services will be updating the Elder and Dependent Adult abuse report forms SOC 341/342. Please continue to use the same forms; this website will be updated as soon as new forms are available.
