Domestic Partner Coverage

The College offers domestic partner coverage for health and dental plans only. Under this policy, a full-time employee may enroll his/her domestic partner and their partner's dependent children in a College-sponsored health and/or dental insurance plan. When an employee enrolls a domestic partner in a College-sponsored insurance plan, the employee does not benefit from the same pre-tax benefits that married employees do. More detailed information on this plan and its tax implications can be found below.
