After DOMA: Information for Married Same-Sex Couples
The fall of DOMA means that many married same-sex couples can access the spousal benefits provided by the federal government through its many programs. However, married same-sex couples, living in states that do not recognize their marriage, may not have access to the spousal benefits of some federal programs. Same-sex couples who are in a civil union or registered domestic partnership and are living in a state that recognizes their relationship may have access to Social Security spousal benefits, but not to the benefits offered to spouses by other federal programs.

This publication provides steps same-sex married couples can take to possibly preserve their rights to retroactive Social Security spousal or children benefits that are currently being denied because of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
