Same-Sex Ruling and your State of Illinois Benefits

Domestic Partner Benefits Clarified

The Domestic Partner Benefits policy is currently under review by Human Resources and the Faculty Affairs sub-committee of the Academic Senate. While necessary revisions are being made to ensure the policy reflects the State of Illinois' recent recognition of civil unions, the health insurance reimbursement portion of the policy will remain in place for employees in same or opposite sex domestic partner relationships not eligible for benefits through the State Employees Group Insurance Act. If you have questions or need information about domestic partner benefits, please contact your Benefits Counselor at 438-8311.
