With direct-to-employee benefits, payroll employees and contractors have the option to choose a benefits provider for remote health care, health insurance, retirement savings, and tax withholding assistance.

To get started with direct-to-employee benefits:

1. Log in to the Square Team dashboard or Square Team App from a mobile device. If you do not have the app, you can download it from the App Store for iOS devices or from Google Play for Android devices.
2. Once you’re logged in, tap More > Benefits.
3. On the Benefits tab, you’ll see a list of direct-to-employee benefits. Press on the benefit type to learn more.
