The benefits will help same-sex couples as well as women who delay having children or struggle with infertility.

The stipends can be combined for a lifetime maximum of $40,000, a Goldman spokesman told FOX Business on Tuesday.

Goldman also expanded its paid parental leave to an industry-leading 20 weeks for all new parents, whether they’re the primary caregiver or not.

The company’s benefit plan already included sex-reassignment surgery and in vitro fertilization treatment.

Goldman has launched several family-friendly policies for employees, including shipping mothers’ breast milk home when they travel overseas and offering emergency nannies for parents whose children get sick.
