Effective January 1, 2010, provisions within state budget bill 2009 Wisconsin Act 28 permit same sex and opposite sex domestic partners to be treated similarly to spouses for the Wisconsin Statute § Chapter 40 benefit programs administered by Employee Trust Funds (ETF).

Chapter 40 benefit programs include the State Group Health Insurance Program, the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS), the Wisconsin Deferred Compensation Program (WDC), State Group Life Insurance and other related programs. These provisions became effective on January 1, 2010, which was the first possible effective date of a domestic partnership for Chapter 40 benefit purposes.
