In managing your company's payroll and benefits, it's essential to ensure that your employees' dependents are accurately recorded. Dependents can include spouses, children, or other family members who may be eligible for certain benefits, such as health insurance coverage. By adding employees’ dependents to Fingercheck, you can streamline administrative processes and ensure that your employees receive the benefits they deserve.

In this article, we'll walk you through the steps to efficiently add dependents for your employees using Fingercheck.
