Boeing to give pension survivor benefits to same-sex spouses, partners

169401_prop8_1208_RCGWASHINGTON — The Boeing Co. has announced it will be extending its Pension Value Plan and BSS Retirement Plan to same-sex spouses and domestic partners as beneficiaries for pension survivor benefits, according to Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash.

“I commend Boeing for providing equal pension survivor benefits for same-sex spouses and domestic partners,” Smith said in a news release Tuesday afternoon. “LGBT workers are a critical part of a skilled labor force and equal treatment of their employees has led to Boeing’s success and global leadership in aerospace, science, and technology.

“It is unacceptable to deny any person equal pay or benefits because of who they love,” Smith added.
