Attention All Veterans and Claimants
On June 26, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court held, in United States v. Windsor, that section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act "DOMA", which limited the terms "marriage" and "spouse" for purposes of Federal statutes, regulations, or rulings, to only include persons of the opposite sex, is unconstitutional. On September 4, 2013, the Attorney General informed Congress that the President has directed the Executive Branch to cease enforcement of similar provisions in sections 101(3) and 101(31) of title 38 of the United States Code to the extent those provisions preclude recognition of legally valid marriages of same-sex couples.
In light of the President's direction, VA is no longer denying marital benefit claims because a "spouse" or a "surviving spouse" is not a person of the opposite sex. VA is working closely with the Department of Justice to develop guidance to process cases involving same-sex spousal benefits, and to implement necessary changes swiftly and smoothly in order to deliver the best services to all our nation's Veterans. However, even as VA works to implement the President's decision, VA recognizes that there may be certain situations in which current statutes and variations in state law may preclude VA from providing spousal benefits to same-sex married couples.
