Spousal Abandonment


When an individual can’t locate their spouse after making a reasonable attempt to find them. Also known as desertion.

• This comes into play when applying for health insurance through the Marketplace. You have to describe your household.

♦ If you’re a victim of spousal abandonment, you can select “unmarried” on your Marketplace application.

This will allow you to qualify for premium tax credits and other savings based on your income.
