Adding Dependents, Beneficiaries, and Emergency Contacts

These instructions guide you in adding a dependent, beneficiary, or emergency contact (such as a spouse or child) to an employee’s profile in Wurk, on systems upgraded to the latest release. This enables you to add these individuals to the employee’s benefit plan as appropriate. You will typically do this when an employee has a Life Event, such as a birth, death, marriage, or divorce. Your Admin Settings for how the employee can log such events in Wurk may automate this process. For details, contact your Administrator.

Menu items and on-screen options may vary depending on your configuration and Security Profile.
