Same-Sex Partner Benefits: Now What?

By on August 13, 2013

Please join McDermott Will & Emery partner, Todd Solomon, at a Worldwide Employee Benefits (WEB) Network Chicago Chapter event that will cover recent developments in same-sex partner benefits.

A much-anticipated Supreme Court ruling overturned a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA. That much is clear. What is less clear is what long-term impact this will have on employer-sponsored retirement and health benefit plans.  How do the federal tax laws apply to health benefits provided for same-sex spouses? How should retirement plans treat same-sex spouses who did not receive a qualified joint and survivor annuity as a default form of benefit? Following this ruling, should plan sponsors consider adopting a definition of spouse based on state law?

If you are confronting these and or other practical questions, you will not want to miss our session focusing on the most recent developments in same-sex partner benefits.
