Same-Sex Marriage (08/23/2013)
Effective August 1, 2013 same-sex marriage is legal in Minnesota.

Some of the changes with respect to employee benefits include:

  • You may pay for same-sex spouse’s health coverage on a pre-tax basis through a cafeteria plan in the same way as an employee with an opposite-sex spouse.
  • Same sex-spouses may qualify as a “spouse” for COBRA purposes and can have their own COBRA election rights.
  • A same-sex spouse is considered a spouse or family member for purposes of taking leave under FMLA
  • You may receive tax-free reimbursements for expenses of his or her same-spouse through a HSA, FSA or HRA.
  • Special enrollment rights are triggered when you acquire a same-sex spouse.  Marriage is a qualifying event and all insurance changes must be made within 30 days of the marriage.
