PeopleSoft HCM update on Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)

On June 26, 2013 the U.S. Supreme Court declared Section 3 of DOMA, which denied federal recognition of same-sex marriages, unconstitutional. However, this left in place Section 2, which allowed states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. Then on August 29, 2013 IRS issued ruling IR-2013-72 which stated same-sex couples, legally married in a jurisdiction that recognizes their marriage will be treated as married for federal purposes. The ruling applies regardless of whether the couple lives in a jurisdiction that recognizes same-sex marriage or a jurisdiction that does not recognize same-sex marriage. PeopleSoft has already delivered some functionality related to this change. PeopleSoft Benefits and Payroll for North America plan on delivering additional functionality which will make your processing and compliance with this law even easier. We have revised the PeopleSoft Position Paper include any new information we have obtained since the last posting on My Oracle Support, Document ID 1586141.1 .  We encourage you to review the latest Statement to keep up to date.
