Frequently Asked Questions Benefits for LGBT Federal Employees and Annuitants

Is my same-sex domestic partner/spouse entitled to coverage under the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP)?

Your same-sex spouse, but not a same-sex domestic partner, is entitled to such coverage. The Federal Employee Dental and Vision Benefits Enhancement Act of 2004, codified at 5 U.S.C. §§ 8951-8992, limits coverage to spouses and children.
