It's a more "legal" term.

Pilar T. Bayle: Socio doesn't contemplate the sexual aspect of a domestic partner... It is used exclusively in a business environment.

la pareja con la que cohabita


Explanation:
Dado que esta expresión comprende tanto a las parejas homosexuales como a las heterosexuales. Esto te quedará más claro si consultas la página de opciones alternas al matrimonio:
http://www.unmarried.org/faq.html#dpregistry

Pues el "defacto partner" equivale prácticamente al concubinato, en donde la pareja tiene que ser forzosamente heterosexual y aquí creo que se trata más bien de un nuevo término (politically correct?), por lo que yo diría:
“Las prestaciones están disponibles para su cónyuge o para la pareja con la que cohabita. “La pareja con la que cohabita” es un término legal para definir a alguien con quien usted vive pero con quien no se encuentra casado(a)....”
!Suerte!
