Supreme Court’s Gay Marriage Ruling Clarifies Some Questions for People with Disabilities

The U.S. Supreme Court recently released opinions in two
cases dealing with gay marriage, and by striking down a portion of the federal
Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the court has made it easier for same-sex
married couples to access certain types of disability benefits. However, the
ruling is not all good news for same-sex couples, because in certain cases
being married could harm an applicant's ability to qualify for needs-based
services.
