Recommended way of dealing with a class with hundred of attributes.

I have a Client class that contains many attributes(about 100).In my html form however, I grouped these details into Personal, Medical, Employer, Payment, Beneficiaries etc.
When I designed the class, the constructor of the class was cluttered with all those variables. I thought of creating separate classes for the Personal, Medical, Employer, Payment and Beneficiaries details, just to reduce the number of fields in the main class.

class Client
{

    protected Personal $personal;
    protected Medical $medical;
    protected Employer $employer;
    protected Payment $payment;
    protected Beneficiary $beneficiary;

    protected $db;

    function __construct($personal, $medical, $employer, $payment, $beneficiary, DB $db)
    {
        $this->personal = $personal;
        $this->medical = $medical;
        $this->employer = $employer;
        $this->payment = $payment;
        $this->beneficiary = $beneficiary;

        $this->db = $db->getConnection();

    }

    public function register()
    {

    }
}

Is this the proper way to go? If it is ok, then how do I efficiently extract all the other information and save to their corresponding tables.
