Domestic Partners

Domestic partnerships offer non-married couples many of the same legal benefits allowed to married couples. Domestic partnerships often offer benefits related to health insurance, life insurance, death benefits, sick and family leave, and state tax treatment, to name a few. Not all states recognize domestic partnerships. States that do often have differences in the details. These differences can affect how employers must treat domestic partners, as well as who is eligible.
