You may be surprised to see a section of this website specifically aimed at older people who are gay, bisexual or lesbian. Many of the issues relating to planning for later life are very similar whether you are gay or straight.
However, some matters might need special consideration. This is because the legal context is changing in relation to gay people, mainly in a very helpful way. However the assumptions or prejudices of others can cause some difficulties.
The following guides are published by Age Scotland partner Age UK. As far as possible, information given is applicable across the UK but in some instances different arrangements may apply in Scotland. Readers in those countries are advised to contact the Silver Line Scotland on 0800 4 70 80 90 for more information.
