DOMESTIC PARTNER BENEFITS
Employees of The City University of New York who meet the University and The City of New York requirements for registering as a member of a domestic partnership are eligible to apply for several employee benefits. One of the benefits is health coverage for the domestic partner under the family coverage of the health plan that the employee has elected. The children of the domestic partner may also be eligible for health coverage if they meet the criteria.
An information packet containing partnership registration procedures and forms, benefit application procedures and forms, are available from the Fringe Benefits Office, Room P203. Employees who have already registered their domestic partnerships with The City Clerk of The City of New York may use that registration, in part, to meet the University and The City of New York requirements.
You may inquire about registration and applications by calling Detrice McPhatter at extension 6525. The Office of Human Resources and Labor Relations holds all personnel and benefits records at the College in strict confidence. If you are concerned about even greater confidentiality in registering your partnership for the purpose of applying for health benefits, you may elect to contact:
Mr. Leslie Williams
University Director of Employee Benefits
