I have a question on Social Security and the repeal of DOMA

If a resident of Arkansas gets married in let's say NYC. Can the person then claim his same sex spouse as spouse with Social Security and qualify for survivor benefits?

1. Prolly, as SocSec is a FEDERAL program,

and that's what the Decision addressed. Residence doesn't affect SocSec benefits.

2. Yes.

 

Any legally performed marriage in the US must be recognized by the Federal Government.

4. SinkingFeeling: that was my thought also.

I got stuck in my head that the repeal allowed the Federal Gov to recognize marriages legal in the state.
