Item Description
Title File 018
Transcript Alimony, child support, and property arrangements at divorce should be such that minor children's needs are first to be met and spouses share the economic dislocation of divorce. As a minimum every State should enact the economic provisions of the Uniform Marriage and Divorce Act proposed by the Commissioners on Uniform State Laws and endorsed by the American Bar Association. Loss of pension rights because of divorce should be considered in property divisions. More effective methods for collection of support should be adopted. The Census Bureau should collect data on the economic arrangements at divorce and their enforcement, with a large enough sample to analyze the data by State. The Federal and State Governments should help homemakers displaced by widowhood, divorce, or desertion to become self-sufficient members of society through programs providing counseling, training and placement and counseling on business opportunities; advice on financial management; and legal advice. ¥# # INSURANCE State legislatures and State insurance commissioners should adopt the Model Regulation to Eliminate Unfair Sex Discrimination of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. The Regulation should be amended and adopted to include prohibition of the following practices: • Denial of coverage for pregnancy and pregnancy-related expenses for all comprehensive medical/hospital care. • Denial of group disability coverage for normal pregnancy and complications of pregnancy. • Denial of health insurance coverage to newborns from birth. i 16 • Requiring dependents who convert from spouses' contracts to their own to pay increased premiums for the same coverage or be forced to insure for lower coverage. • Denial of coverage to women with children born out of wedlock and denying eligibility of benefits to such children. • Using sex-based actuarial mortality tables in rate and benefit computation.
