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, benefits application procedures and forms, is available from the Benefits Office, Room P203, or Domestic Partner Information.

The Office of Human Resources 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:
