Same-sex spouse benefits coming July 13 for Ga. University System

University_system_georgia_logoThis should be awesome for employees at CSU. From AJC:

Employees of the University System of Georgia will be able to enroll same-sex spouses in benefit plans beginning July 13, according to an update posted Tuesday on the system’s website.

The policy updates follow the Supreme Court’s decision last month legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states. Georgia had been one of 13 states banning same-sex marriage prior to the ruling.

The effective coverage date will be backdated to June 26 — the date of the court ruling — or July 1 for same-sex marriages that occurred June 26 or earlier. Employees will have until Sept. 1 to register the change and provide necessary documentation.
