The U.S. Supreme Court Decision striking down a provision of the Defense of Marriage Act that denied same-sex couples access to federal marriage benefits has prompted many gays and lesbians to marry and engage in financial planning.

So reports the Insured Retirement Institute in a November 2013 report, “Post-Windsor: Retirement Planning for Same-Sex Couples.” IRI commissioned Woelfel Research to survey same-sex couples in 13 states (plus the District of Columbia) that permit same-sex marriages to determine their reactions to the SCOTUS DOMA decision in 2013 and to gather information on their retirement and financial actions, attitudes and habits.
