Start Your Living Will

Answer some questions. We'll take care of the rest.

Consider updating your Living Willwhen you need to:
  • Change or set limits on medical care to meet your ability to pay
  • Respond to changes in medical technology
  • Respond to a change in health care laws
  • Respond to a changes in your health, including: decline, terminal diagnosis, possibility of surgery and hospitalization, or pregnancy
  • Designate a different person to make health care decisions for you
  • Move to a new state
  • Respond to changes in your beliefs and wishes concerning end-of-life care
  • Respond to the death of a loved one or significant other
Remember that new documents will generally supersede old ones — in other words, executing a new Living Will has the effect of revoking a prior Living Will.
