DOMA Invalidation Complicates Surviving-Spouse Beneficiary Matters
HR Daily Advisor Link to more items from this source
June 25, 2014
"[A recently-filed Connecticut] case challenges the effective date of IRS guidance to plan sponsors to recognize same-gender couples' marriages as of June 26, 2013. A plaintiff win in this case would mean the effective date of DOMA invalidation for the Bayer plan would be retroactive to January 2009, and may cause any determinations made while DOMA was valid for similarly situated plans to be challenged." [Passaro v. Bayer Corp., No. 3:14-cv-00671 (D.Conn. filed May 12, 2014)]
