I am receiving Social Security benefits. Must I tell Social Security I am in a civil union or other non-marital legal relationship?

Your status in a civil union or other non-marital legal relationship may affect your entitlement to benefits. You must tell us if you are in a civil union or other non-marital legal relationship.

If you have questions about how a same-sex civil union or non-marital legal relationship may affect your claim,
please call 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or contact 
your local Social Security office.
