The agency Human Resources Representative has created dependent records so that an employee's dependent can participate in benefit plans, such as medical insurance. Beneficiary records have also been created so that an employee's Beneficiary will receive benefits from a plan, such as life insurance, in the event of the employee's death. (Note: this does NOT include beneficiaries for a retirement plan.) A person can be both a dependent and a beneficiary for an employee.
When changes need to be made to the dependent/beneficiary information, for example, a name change or change of address, the Address Book record for the dependent/beneficiary will need to be changed.
Note: Before beginning this instruction, be sure to know the employee’s Address Book number the dependent/beneficiary is attached to.
