Add or Remove Domestic Partner

entering into a domestic partnership

If you want to enroll a registered domestic partner in your health plans (meaning they have registered with the state), you can submit a copy of their state registration.

If you want to enroll an unregistered domestic partner in your health plans, you must complete the Domestic Partner Enrollment Affidavit.

  • You will need to review the affidavit with your domestic partner to confirm that you qualify based on the criteria listed. domestic partners can be same-sex, opposite-sex, or non-binary.
  • Your domestic partner’s children may also be eligible for health coverage, if your domestic partner is also on the plan.
    • If you are enrolling your domestic partner’s children, you must provide a copy of your birth certificate to prove your relationship with your domestic partner.
    • You have 60 days from the date of your signed affidavit or state registration to submit a copy of your documentation and make changes to your benefit elections. Any changes you make must be consistent with the life event change rating. Your new elections will be effective the 1st of the month after you submit your paperwork.

      If you miss the window to submit paperwork, your next opportunity to make changes will be during open enrollment.

      If your domestic partner has ended and you need to remove your former domestic partner from your health plans, you will need to complete the Domestic Partner Termination Statement.

      Please note that domestic partner termination is not a cobra event, so your former domestic partner and their children will not be eligible to continue coverage under cobra.

      make changes

      You can start a qualifying life event and upload a copy of your documentation by logging into peoplesoft self-service and following this path:

      main menu> self-service > advantages > life event > I have added a common-law partner

      or

      An employee benefits representative will open a life event and send you an email with instructions to make your elections. receipt of your paperwork will start the life event process, but you must then log in to actively make your new elections after receiving an email notification of employee benefits.

      after tax deductions

      if you enroll a domestic partner in medical, dental, or vision coverage, premiums will be deducted from their paycheck after taxes according to irs rules and will result in taxable income for federal tax purposes only about rent. Per IRS guidelines, adding a domestic partner to your benefits will result in taxable income for federal income tax purposes only.

      If you and your domestic partner marry in the future, you must provide a copy of your marriage certificate immediately so your domestic partner can be upgraded to spouse and your premiums can be upgraded before taxes.
