Living Wills & Health Care Powers of Attorney in Your State

When it comes to making end-of-life healthcare documents, every state has its own laws, its own forms, and its own terminology. It's important to use the right documents for your state; you don't want your healthcare agent or your family to encounter any difficulty in exercising the authority that you've granted. Presenting forms that look familiar to hospitals and health care providers can go a long way toward making a difficult time a little easier.
