Annual Teleconference Series: The monthly series of ECFC teleconferences provide a unique and valuable opportunity to receive in-depth briefings on important and timely topics by experts from ECFC’s Technical Advisory Committee and key decision-makers in government.

December Session: U.S. v. Windsor on DOMA – How does it affect FSAs, HRAs and other Employee Benefit Programs
Synopsis: The U.S. Supreme Court issued U.S. v. Windsor on June 26, 2013 in which it found section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (“DOMA”) to be invalid. Section 3 of DOMA amended the Dictionary Act—a law providing rules of construction for over 1,000 federal laws and the related federal regulations—to define “marriage” and “spouse” as excluding same-sex partners. This presentation will discuss the following: What is the impact of the invalidation of Section 3 of DOMA; What controls if a marriage is to be considered legally binding – location of residency or location of celebration; Subsequent developments following the Supreme Court Decision; and How to proceed.
