GLAD's "Know Your Rights After DOMA" Campaign for LGBTQ Families
With DOMA's demise, GLAD (Gay & Lesbian Advocates and Defenders) are currently in the process of educating as many LGBTQ community members about their rights as they relate to taxes and federal benefits. The fact sheet images below are a good start, and GLAD will also be hosting two upcoming webinars:
- 1/23 at 12:30pm: Social Security benefits for same-sex married couples
- 1/30 at 12:30pm: Dollars and Sense: Filing Taxes after DOMA
GLAD also has their GLAD Answers program, a legal information service where community members can call and reach a live person on the other end to ask questions, get referrals, and find out more about their own legal situation.
We hope this information is helpful for Vermont's LGBTQ families!
