Benefits for Same-Sex Couples

September 18, 2013

The Social Security Administration has announced that it is processing some retirement spouse claims for same-sex couples and paying benefits where they are due. In the coming weeks and months, we will work with the Department of Justice to develop and implement additional policy and processing instructions. If you believe you may be eligible for Social Security benefits, I encourage you to file as soon as possible to protect you against the loss of any potential benefits.

Go to http://www.ssa.gov and look at the “online services” link to apply.
