Registered Domestic Partners
Registered Domestic PartnersThe Court considers a Registered Domestic Partner as an eligible dependent on an employees Health Benefit Plan offered through the Superior Court.  In order to enroll a registered domestic partner, the employee must do so within the regular Open Enrollment periods each year, or within 31 days of the date the employee and their domestic partner received a State certified Affidavit of Domestic Partnership. 

If an employee does not have a State certified Affidavit of Domestic Partnership and they wish to add their significant other to the Court's Health Benefit Plan as a dependent, they may certify to the Court that they are engaged in a domestic partnership by providing a minimum of twelve (12) months documentation that such relationship exists.  Such documentation that will be considered towards certification of Domestic Relations includes the following: a joint checking/savings account, joint loan account (auto, home, etc.), or joint lease account (auto, home, etc.).

*All payroll deductions for registered domestic partners are subject to a post-tax deduction.
