What if I'm pregnant?
California law states that a living will's provisions may not be effective if the person is pregnant and the life-sustaining treatment is likely to result in the live birth of the child or the continuation of the pregnancy to the point of viability.
Pregnant women in California should be aware that their living will provisions might not be enforced during their pregnancy and should communicate their wishes with their healthcare agent, family, and healthcare providers.
Does a Living Will impact life insurance?
A living will does not impact the validity of a life insurance policy in California. A living will deals with end-of-life healthcare decisions, while a life insurance policy provides financial support for beneficiaries.
