Domestic Partner Benefits are Catching on

Slightly more than half of the companies on our list offer domestic partner benefits.

The Paperwork

Each benefits provider has rules about who qualifies as a domestic partner, and couples may need to submit paperwork — notarized affidavit, proof of joint bank account, shared mortgage or shared vehicle ownership, for example — to substantiate their relationship. Plus, payroll deductions have to be set up carefully, as healthcare premium payments for domestic partners are not pretax as they are for dependents.

Who Offers Domestic Partner Benefits

54 of the 100 companies on our list

39 Florida-based companies on the list

68% of small companies on the list

71% of midsized companies on the list

19% of large companies on the list

Superbug that doctors have been dreading just reached the U.S.
