Skip to comments.Same-Sex Couples to Get More Federal Benefits
Posted on 06/22/2014 4:25:16 PM PDT by SkyPilot
The Social Security Administration announced Friday it has finalized its rules about benefits and obligations to same-sex married couples.
Nearly one year after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the ban on federal benefits for legally married same-sex couples, the SSA clarified that legally-married couples (including in a foreign country that recognizes same-sex unions) are entitled to benefits no matter their current state of residence.
In other words, a same-sex couple who married in Illinois, but currently lives in Texas- which does not sanction same-sex unions- will be awarded the same benefit considerations as heterosexual couples. This is a departure from the policy Social Security has historically followed. It used to defer to the definition of "marriage" in a couple's state of residence.
Partners in same-sex marriages who believe they are now entitled to benefits - as current, divorced or widowed spouses - are encouraged to file.
In addition, Social Security is also accepting disability claims from individuals in same- sex marriages.

This is clearly discriminatory. These couples should receive at least TWICE the benefits.
Meet the new patricians. They want your kids
Payback for pimping Barack Hussein Obama’s communist agenda.
Mutual masturbation is not marriage.
All we can do is live for Him.
The growing array of sodomite rights. They need to return to mental institutions and laws passed to ban such behavior.
will we have medicare?...promised and PAID for for decades...

it seems to me this gay giveaway is the same thing...expanding what should be OUR benefits to groups that have never had them....
islamist is as islamist does
Note that common law is a constitutional term as evidenced by the 7th Amendment.
My good friend and coworker of many years always wrote GAY on
the unending forms we had to fill out!
On every form he would fit it in some how.
He always said this will pay off someday!
And not to worry about any problems because since his divorce;let them prove otherwise!
Now if he had lived a few more years, he could have collected!
Platonic roommates should start demanding benefits.
When the colors of the “rainbow” are blended, the result is brown.
If a man and woman are divorced with no children and one dies, the other CANNOT get the SS benefits. How will that work with gays?
That is EXACTLY correct. Obama considers Medicare and Social Security "white" Entitlements. Fewer and fewer minorities work their entire lives, and don't qualify. Therefore, he created new Entitlements (ObamaCare) and GREATLY expanded existing ones (Food Stamps, Medicaid, Section 8 Housing, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). HA! "Temporary." What an outrage.
Indeed. Social Security is a scheme based on next generation of children paying for their true relatives’ retirement. This is scum selective redistribution at its worst... your kids paying for the next door perverts...
