How-to Write Your End of Life Plan: 3 Basic Steps Page 7

  • Give copies of your completed AHD to family or advisors
    Keep a copy in a secure place and share its location with trusted loved ones.
  • Revise your AHD if your health changes
    You have the right to revoke or change it anytime.

For more information on final healthcare matters, visit and read the eBooks “AHD: Advanced Healthcare Directive“ and “Long-Term Care Options and Planning.”

Take a few minutes to answer these questions.

  1. Which healthcare providers can advise you if you need help completing your AHD?
  2. How often will you revisit your AHD to ensure that it meets your final care needs?
Step 2: Write Your Will

If you own anything of value, we recommend that you prepare a will. This legal document includes your final wishes for distributing your financial, material and digital assets after your death. It may also include your wishes for your final services.

Writing a will can be as simple as writing or typing out how you want your assets to be transferred to loved ones or charitable organizations after your death. If you don’t have a will when you pass away, your estate will be handled in probate court, and the court may distribute your property differently than what you would like. We recommend that you consult an attorney to prepare and/or review your will to ensure it complies with your state’s requirements.

Here are some actions to take to complete Step 2:

  • Find the Last Will & Testament form for your state
    Note that not all states have a specific form for preparing a will.
  • Identify and inventory your assets
    Assets may include financial and digital assets, and personal items like jewelry, art-work and other heirlooms.
