Living Will Registries

An advance directive, or living will, is a document you can use to share your wishes about life-prolonging medical treatments. A living will can declare whether you would want certain health care procedures provided, withheld or withdrawn if you are in a terminal condition and death is imminent, or are permanently unconscious.

Regardless of what is stated in a living will, you may make health care decisions as long as you are capable of making and communicating those decisions. You can cancel an advanced directive at any time and in any manner that effectively communicates the intent to cancel it.

Did you know? Although they all sound similar, a “living will” is not at all like a “will” or “living trust”. All three perform different functions within an estate plan.

Each state has its own laws regarding living wills. Please visit the Kansas Bar Association or The Missouri Bar for additional information.

Advance Directive Registries: You can download your advance directive to a national registry so that your wishes are easily available to doctors and medical professionals. Obtain more information on these registries by visiting their websites:
