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.
