"Age is no indicator of relationship status or financial responsibility."—Drew Browne "Age is no indicator of relationship status or financial responsibility."—Drew Browne

Single

Age is no indicator of relationship status or financial responsibility.

  • You can be young and starting out or older and established; and both enjoying living the single life.
  • You might be single, single again, sometimes single, single with kids, single with pets or perhaps something a little more complicated.

When it comes to being single in the LGBTI community, there's really no such thing as average.

And it's your single life, so live it your way.

Balancing flexibility with personal responsibility

As a single LGBTI person, the additional flexibility in your lifestyle also comes with a greater degree of personal financial responsibility and the need to rely upon yourself.

  • Single people are keenly aware of the risk of becoming sick or even disabled.
  • Being single and self-reliant means you generally have to save more in your emergency savings fund, be careful with your long term health and have a higher amount of disability insurance in case you get sick or injured and can't work temporarily or lose your ability to earn your income longterm.
  • For many single LGBTI Australians, there’s often no financial backup and usually diminished family support; so staying healthy and independent, and able to continue to earn your income is something you cannot afford to lose.
Being single can bring a level of freedom that needs a greater level of protection.

Why LBGTI single people need specialist financial advice

  • As a community that still has more single people than coupled, we are more vulnerable to the financial risks that losing our ability to earn our income brings.
  • For many people in the LGBTI community who are single, unmarried or unpartnered, longer-term financial stability and security can be a source of anxiety.

If you’re single and LGBTI, it's time to learn more about your options today and then take action to protect what you cannot afford to lose - your ability to continue to earn your income.

Other considerations:

  • Are you Single in Business? You probably have additional business risks to manage. Let us help you with that.
  • Are you planning IVF or surrogacy? You probably have some longer-term planning ahead. Let us help you protect that too.

  • Partnered

    Sharing life and love with someone can be twice as exciting.

    • You might be partnered, partnered with pets, officially de facto, officially married (yay!), splitting expenses but sharing life, or joining incomes and combining financial lives too.
    • You might be together but living apart, working towards a future with kids, thinking about fostering, adopting, IVF or surrogacy; or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to being partnered in the LGBTI community, there's really no such thing as average.

    There's no right or wrong way to live a purposeful life, just what works for you both.

  • Parenting

    For today's LBGTI families, there are no accidental families.

    • You might be parenting and single with kids, parenting and partnered with kids, (yours, theirs and ours), dual parents with kids, co-parents, foster parents, adoptive parents, or even adoptive parents of kids with additional needs (just beautiful!).
    • You might be a lesbian co-parenting couple or super involved Guncles or Aunties. You might not even identify with the broader LGBTI community but find yourself a parent in a same-sex relationship; or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to parenting in the LGBTI community, there's really no such thing as average.

    However you're doing it, Love makes a family.
