LGBT FINANCIAL PLANNING
The June 26, 2015, historic and momentous Supreme Court verdict (Obergefell v. Hodges) permitting same-sex marriage throughout the U.S., will have wide-ranging implications on the financial planning landscape for same-sex couples. Whether married or unmarried, same-sex couples will need to consider how relationship status will affect them financially in virtually all planning areas: income taxes, estate/gift, retirement, Social Security, and employee benefits.
A recent study by the Spectrem Group polled LGBT investors with $100,000 or more in investable assets found that Two-thirds said that their advisor should be "familiar with the unique financial situations of the LGBT community." And 40 percent said their advisor should have other LGBT families and individuals as clients.
