AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

I am in a same-sex civil union. Can I receive benefits based on my partner's work record?

En español | On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court issued a decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, holding that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry in all states.  As a result, more same-sex couples will be recognized as married for purposes of determining entitlement to Social Security benefits.  For more information, visit the Social Security Administration’s web page at https://www.socialsecurity.gov/people/same-sexcouples/.
