Actual Good News

The federal Pension Protection Act signed into law by the president yesterday include (1) provsions that allows transfer of one's retirements benefits to one's domestic partner's retirement plan, without lump-sum penalties, in the event of one's death, and (2) provisions that allow one to draw on the funds in one's retirement plan to cover medical emergencies affecting one's domestic partner. Other non-spousal beneficiaries are similarly covered.

Here's the Human Rights Campaign press release. Link via Towleroad.
