Domestic Partner Benefits

The 2017-2019 state budget will eliminate the Chapter 40 domestic benefit program for Department of Employee Trust Fund (ETF)-administered benefits for state of Wisconsin employees. Dane County allows same gender same gender and opposite gender domestic partners to register, though the documentation from a county registration will no longer allow state employees to enroll their domestic partner in ETF administered state benefits.

Starting in 2009, the state of Wisconsin allowed non-married couples of any gender to add a domestic partner and their dependents the employee's benefit plans. The links below provide information about those benefits.
