Pre-Retirement Benefits Available for Surviving Same-Gender Spouses

The Lay Defined Benefit Plan provides a survivor benefit to eligible spouses — same-gender and opposite-gender — of active employees who die at or after age 55 but before retirement. Under current rules, to be eligible, a surviving spouse must have been legally married to an active employee for at least 12 months prior to the employee’s death.

Acknowledging that same-gender marriage was only recently recognized nationally, and also in response to General Convention Resolution 2015-D047, we are relaxing eligibility requirements for a period of time.
