On Friday June 28, 2013, a memorandum was issued from the United States Office of Personnel Management(OPM) in response to the repeal of DOMA . This memorandum simply highlights federal employee benefits that are now available to married gay and lesbian couples.

  • Health insurance(FEHB):
  • Life insurance (FEGLI)
  • Dental and Vision(FEDVIP)
  • Longterm Care Insurance (FLTCIP)
  • Retirement
  • Flexible Spending Accounts

According to the OPM, employees and annuitants will have 60 days from June 26, 2013 until August 26, 2013, to make immediate changes to their insurance  enrollments.

Those seeking retirement benefits will have two years from the date of the Supreme Court’s decision to tell the OPM of their marriage which now qualifies for recognition and elect any changes to their retirement benefits based on their recognized marital status.
