Who Has a Living Will?

Only 28 percent of Americans have a living will, defined as "directives or documented instructions and/or wishes and preferences regarding the type of care they would like to receive or not receive at the end stage of their life." Older Americans are much more likely to have a living will than younger Americans...

Percent with a living will

Boomers: 36%
