State retirement program offers same-sex benefits

State retirement program offers same-sex benefits

Starting Wednesday, Texas Tech employees in the Employee Retirement System of Texas can enroll their same-sex spouses for employment and retirement benefits. 

Employees have 30 days after a wedding to enroll a spouse. Couples who were previously married outside of Texas will have 30 days from the Supreme Court ruling granting marriage equality to add a same-sex partner.  Employees of the University of Texas and Texas A&M University systems are also enrolling.
