Viewing and Updating Dependent Information Using Self Service in HRS


This document provides employees with instructions on how to review and update certain dependent information. This is a function available to all University of Wisconsin System employees, and will be accessed via HRS self-service on My UW System Portal.

Process Considerations:

  • Some dependent information can only be updated though the benefits administrator such as date of birth and social security number.

    warning  A change may impact a dependent's eligibility, coverage or may require further documentation for proof of change.
