Reciprocal Beneficiaries
Any two people who register under Hawaii's reciprocal beneficiary laws. Reciprocal beneficiaries have hospital visitation rights, the right to inherit from each other in the absence of a will, and certain other limited rights under Hawaii state law. Reciprocal beneficiaries may be of the same or opposite sex and may be related--there is no requirement that the two people be in an intimate relationship.
