National Resource Center on LGBT Aging Introduces Legal and Financial Support Resources
New interactive features help address the unique needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults.
[NEW YORK, NY] Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) announced today that it has introduced a variety of new legal and financial resources on its National Resource Center on LGBT Aging website. The site, launched in October 2010, has been evolving over time as the most comprehensive centralized clearinghouse of online resources for and about LGBT older adults nationwide.
The legal support section is one in a series of interactive, multimedia resources that the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging will unveil over the next year. These online resources will span the many issues affecting LGBT older adults—from housing and HIV/AIDS, to retirement and healthcare access, and much, much more.

Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) is the country's largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT older adults. SAGE has pioneered programs and services for the aging LGBT community, provided technical assistance and training to expand opportunities for LGBT older people across the country, and provided a national voice on LGBT aging issues. In 2005, SAGE became the first official LGBT delegate at the White House Conference on Aging. In 2010, SAGE was awarded a three-year $900,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Administration on Aging to seed the creation of the nation's only National Resource Center on LGBT Aging.

"Because laws vary widely from state to state, it can be confusing to figure out exactly what is needed. That's where the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging can help."
