Add My Dependents

How do I add my dependents?

Purpose: During open enrollment for benefits, your employer will need to also identify your dependents. Take action now and be a step ahead by adding your personal dependents to your employee profile. This video will show you how to add or update your dependents at any time.

Do you prefer hands-on learning? Our interactive guides will guide you through different aspects of your BambooHR experience. We have an interactive guide specifically designed to show you how to add your dependents. You can use the link below to access this guide. All you need to do is modify the "REPLACEME" with your BambooHR subdomain, and you can get started! 

To add a dependent, navigate to the My Info tab and click Benefits on the employee profile. Scroll down to the Dependents table and click +Add Dependent.

Enter the new dependent's information in the pop-up window and then click Save.

Hover over a dependent's name in the table and click on the pencil icon to edit their information. If needed, click on the trash can icon to remove a dependent. 

If you are using Benefit Administration, employees must complete the Name and Relationship fields for the dependent to be part of the enrollment experience. 

Depending on how your administrator has configured your account, updates and changes to dependents' information may require approval before they can appear on your employee profile.
