What if I'm pregnant?
Massachusetts law does not specifically address the issue of pregnancy in living wills, so consulting an estate planning attorney is advised to determine any potential implications.
Pregnant women in Massachusetts should consult an estate planning attorney to understand the potential implications of pregnancy on their living will and discuss their preferences with their healthcare agent, family, and healthcare providers.
Does a Living Will impact life insurance?
In Massachusetts, a living will and a life insurance policy are separate entities and do not affect each other. A living will addresses healthcare preferences, while a life insurance policy provides financial support to beneficiaries.
