If supersymmetry exists at any scale, regardless of whether it is restored around the weak scale, it may be a good symmetry of the dark sector, enforcing a degeneracy between its lowest lying fermions and bosons. We explore the implications of this scenario for the early Universe and dark matter, as well as the corresponding signatures. In particular, we show that the thermal history of the dark-sector results in codecaying dark matter in much of the parameter space. This implies new phenomenological signatures and presents a new way to discover high scale supersymmetry.
