Benefits for Same-Sex Spouses

A U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June 2013 invalidated part of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defined "marriage" as a legal union between one man and one woman, and "spouse" as a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or wife, for purposes of all federal laws and agency regulations. Federal agencies have issued the following guidance implementing the DOMA decision:

  • FMLA Guidance (U.S. Department of Labor, effective June 26, 2013. Click here for more information.)
  • Federal Tax Guidance (U.S. Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service, effective September 16, 2013. Click here for more information.)
  • COBRA Guidance. Specific agency guidance has not yet been issued with respect to COBRA continuation coverage.

For more details regarding benefits for same-sex spouses and guidance on same-sex marriage laws specific to your state, click on your state and select "Same-Sex Relationships" from the left-hand navigation menu.
