A living will, or advanced directive, is a will established by a mentally competent person who is over 18 years of age. Below are the five ways to ensure that you get the best deal if you choose to purchase a living will.
 
Living wills categorized by state forms
Each state has its own laws regarding living wills and you have to make sure that you abide by them. However, if you have financial limitations and still wish to create a living will, it is possible through online sources for living wills.
 
What type of treatment forms?
Ensure that your living will service provider provides this form to you. It states the type of medical treatment that you have chosen in the event that you are not capable of making this decision due to illness or incapacity. It is prudent to discuss this aspect of the living will with your doctor first.
 
A medical power of attorney or health care provider and agent forms
This form provides details about your medical POA and health care agent. The nominated person should be capable of making medical decisions on your behalf in the event that you are in a coma or on life support and are otherwise unable to communicate.  If you are unable to afford an attorney at this time, you may want to invest in a living will online.
 
Registration of living will forms
This form is optional, as a living will does not have to be registered to be valid. You can give a copy of this form to your POA and health provider, authorizing them to share the document.
 
Living trust guide and forms
This form is ideal for managing properties. If by any chance you become immobilized, the living trust will aid in managing your company’s financial affairs. Furthermore, if you were serving as a trustee, the trust will pass on to the new successor or trustee chosen by you. Another great aspect is that all requirements of the trust remain private. A living trust is one of the best deals on online living wills.
 
One of the best aspects of living wills is that they are revocable at any time. In addition to the above deals on living wills, other aspects need to be considered. These can range from funeral request forms, insurance and pension forms, estate forms, schedule of asset, and statement of wishes to specifying what kind of care one is to receive. As unexpected situations can happen at any time, it is advisable to find the best deal on living wills and have one ready that spells out the types of medical treatments and life sustaining measures that you are willing to undertake.
