Note: The following National Policy Statement on “domestic partner benefits” was released on November 12, 2001

The Salvation Army’s Commissioner’s Conference has continued a review of issues surrounding extended employee benefits, which has included messages received from Salvationists and other members of our constituencies. This issue has always centered on service to people and we deeply regret the perception that the Commissioners’ Conference surrendered any biblical principles in making the original decision.

The review has resulted in the rescinding of the policy statement – “Contracts for Government Funding – Employment Provisions.” Today, November 12, 2001, the Commissioners’ Conference established a national policy to extend health benefit access to an employee’s spouse and dependent children only.
