Senate Bill 30 was approved by the Governor on July 30, 2019. This bill amends the Family Code definition of domestic partner effective January 1, 2020.
This amendment eliminates the requirement that at least one of the opposite-sex domestic partners be 62 years of age or older to enter into a domestic partnership. The Secretary of State will start registering these Declarations of Domestic Partnerships effective January 1, 2020, therefore, opposite-sex domestic partners not currently registered may not enroll during Open Enrollment.
Entering into a domestic partnership is a qualifying event to add the domestic partner and domestic partner's children.
Requests must be received within 60 days from the registration date to become effective the 1st of the month following the date of the request. However, enrolling a domestic partner is not a qualifying event to change health, dental or vision plans. Consider this as you select your health, dental or vision plans for 2020.
