Beyond Pride: A More Diverse Planning Industry

The path toward student loan forgiveness
Retire with Money
Elizabeth O'Brien
Many people who lived through the AIDS crisis didn’t expect to grow old, so they didn’t get an early start saving for retirement. Same-sex couples who want children face different considerations than heterosexual couples. These are just a couple ways in which the financial experiences of the LGBTQ+ community might not fit the mainstream narrative. So it’s no surprise that mainstream financial advice doesn’t always serve them best. The start of Pride month brings more visibility to these concerns, but they don’t go away when the calendar turns. A new generation of LGBTQ+ money experts is working to make the world of financial advice more inclusive all year round. Learn more about them in today’s edition.

Best wishes,

Beyond Pride: Inside the Movement to Make Money More Inclusive of LGBTQ+ Americans

“When you’re feeling estranged or alone or unsupported, you don’t want to ask for help.”

How to Get Student Loans Forgiven (With or Without Biden's Help)

There are a host of existing programs, but they’re not always easy to access.

This week in our Retire with Money Facebook group, a member recommended the web site for dividend investors. I haven’t used it myself, but it seems like a resource worth exploring. The member who uses it said, “I set up an Excel spreadsheet to track my dividends, but this tool does a lot more, like real time stock prices, a dividend calendar, and stock research and analysis all in one place. And you can import your portfolio(s) from your broker/ dealer; e.g. Fidelity, Vanguard, TD Ameritrade, etc.” There’s a free version and a paid version with more features. If you want to check it out without registering, YouTube has a bunch of tutorials that show its interface.
