SSA Benefits for Same Sex Couples

According to a recent edition of Social Security Forum, “SSA is process and approving claims for spouses of retired workers if the couple is married and currently domiciled in a state that recognizes same sex marriages.  For all other claims, potential beneficiaries are encouraged to apply to preserve a filing date, but their claims will be held and not processed until SSA issues further instructions on processing and paying these claims.”  Please see www.ssa.gov/doma for more information.
