FTWM supports equal civil rights, gender and LGBTQIA+ equality.
We understand that families who identify as LGBTQIA+ may be less prepared for retirement and more concerned about their financial well-being than the general population.
It has only been since June 17, 2020, that we saw the Supreme Court rule that Title VII’s prohibition of employment discrimination based on sex extends to employees discriminated against on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Unfortunately, while there are certain protections for the LGBTQIA+ community at the federal level, there are still many states that have not updated their laws that affect other financial planning challenges for the LGBTQIA+ community, including parental rights, health care, housing, and financial planning options. Given the conflicting state and federal laws, it’s no wonder that financial planning considerations within the LGBTQIA+ community can be confusing.
As LGBTQIA+ allies we strive to ensure that your financial plan aligns with your values and that you receive the support and guidance you need to achieve your goals.
“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.”
