SAGE - Legal & Finance Issues

A host of variables—gender, generation, ethnicity, state of residence, and now marital status—make financial decisions especially challenging for LGBT older adults.

Like everyone, LGBT Americans aspire to good jobs and worry about saving enough for the future. But ongoing legal discrimination, compounded with a lifetime of challenges, make it harder for LGBT older adults to become financially secure and provide for their families.

SAGEFinance* is a new national effort to improve financial security for LGBT older people in two ways.

SAGE is dedicated to providing information that is relevant to LGBT people and their caregivers of all ages. From protecting a relationship to creating a financial plan, SAGE's financial literacy toolkit and infographics below will help you and your loved ones develop and maintain financial security in later years.
