Congressional Research Service [CRS] Link to more items from this source
July 29, 2004
5 pages. "Federal employee pensions and private-sector pensions regulated by [ERISA] are required to provide certain benefits to the spouse of a participant in the event of the participant's death. Under the Defense of Marriage Act, both federal pensions and private-sector pensions regulated by ERISA are required to define a spouse only as 'a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.' " [RS21897, Jul. 28, 2004]
