A Domestic Partner (and family) can be added at the following times: 1) when you enroll as new hire; 2) enroll within 30 days of the establishment of the partnership; 3) during Open Enrollment; or 4) you or they experience a “Qualified Status Change” event (see question # 18 above).   

The Affidavit of Domestic Partnership form must be submitted along with the enrollment/midyear change form(s) when adding a domestic partner.  This form is not required when adding a registered domestic partner.

The "imputed value" of the benefit is considered taxable and may increase your Federal, State, Medicare, and Social Security taxes.  Additional information on Domestic Partner coverage is located in PEBB’s Plan Summary – Individuals Eligible for Coverage.  If your Domestic Partner meets all of the IRS criteria and qualifies as a federal tax dependent, submit the Domestic Partner Certification for Dependent Tax Status form.   Consult a tax advisor to determine the effect it will have on your taxes.
