Financial planning is a journey that requires continual monitoring and adjustments. As you move through different phases of your life, priorities and circumstances change that can alter your course. Being aware of changing needs and finding appropriate solutions can help you reach your financial goals.
The financial landscape for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans – and in particular, same-sex couples – includes a number of matters that are unique to the community, especially in light of the repeal of parts of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and the striking down of Proposition 8 in California. With policies still being established, it’s important to stay informed as the nation’s laws continue to evolve.
