Domestic Partner Benefits
Policy: Dental, Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage is provided to Georgia Institute of Technology employees' unmarried domestic partners.
Procedure: Coverage is provided to unmarried domestic partners under the following conditions:
The employees must complete a "Declaration of Domestic Partnership" in which the parties must swear that they reside together, that neither party is related by blood or marriage to a degree of closeness that would prohibit legal marriage in the state in which they reside, and that they are at least 18 years old; and
Both parties will have to submit certain documentation (e.g., evidence of a joint checking account or joint ownership of property) in order to substantiate a domestic partnership.
Upon termination of the relationship, the covered GT employee will complete the "Declaration of Termination of Domestic Partnership" and submit the document to the Human Resources Benefits Department.
