State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias has extended same-sex health benefits to treasurer’s office employees. Employees who have lived together for at least one year and have shared financial responsibilities can now obtain medical, dental and vision benefits for their partners.

Unionized state workers obtained same-sex benefits through a collective bargaining agreement, and Gov. Rod Blagojevich granted the benefits to all nonunion employees under his jurisdiction. Former Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka cited state budget concerns when she refused to grant the benefits previously.
