Domestic Partnership

Note: This information applies only to regular employees. If you are a graduate student, refer to the Grad Student Domestic Partnership Web page. 

The Research Foundation extends, health, dental, and vision care coverage to domestic partners of Research Foundation employees.

The affidavits and documents you are required to submit are only intended to establish the eligibility of your domestic partner for benefits available to you as a Research Foundation employee (legal same-sex spouses are treated as ordinary spouses and therefore additional affidavits and documents are not required).

However, it is recommended that you seek advice from your attorney regarding any possible legal and financial implications before you take the actions required to provide this benefit coverage to a domestic partner.
