Critical Legal Issues Impacting LGBTQ Individuals as They Age 

Feb. 24, 2021

OBA Elder Law and Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity (SOGIC) PROGRAM
4:30 PM to 6:00 PM (ET)

Join us as we bring together LGBTQ and Elder Law practitioners for a critical discussion of key legal issues that arise for LGBTQ+ individuals as they age, including long term care, wills and estates, as well as pension and benefit concerns.

This discussion is designed for LGBTQ+ individuals and their allies, and Elder Law practitioners looking to better serve LGBTQ+ clients and their families. You will gather helpful advice for navigating common legal issues that arise as members of this community age.

Our expert faculty will share valuable insights on:

  • substitute decision making and estate planning considerations for LGBTQ+ people and their families
  • pension and benefit considerations for LGBTQ individuals
  • understanding elder abuse and queer inclusivity in long-term care facilities
  • equity, diversity and inclusion considerations for Elder Law practitioners working with LGBTQ individuals and their families
