The University of Maine offers eligible domestic partners the opportunity to receive various University benefits equivalent to those available to a spouse.
The partners must submit a notarized Affidavit of Domestic Partnership (PDF) to Kathleen Bell in the Office of Employee Health and Benefits. Supporting documentation, as noted on the Affidavit, must be included. As part of the Affidavit, the partners certify that they have resided together for at least six (6) continuous months prior to the date signed.
Employees agree to notify the University in writing within thirty-one (31) days of any termination of the domestic partnership. A written termination statement shall affirm that the partnership is terminated and that a copy of the termination statement has been mailed to the former partner. A former domestic partner is eligible for continued health coverage under CORBA.
