In line with the provisions of Title 44, Chapter 77 (Death with Dignity Act), in a situation where an individual is incapacitated to the point where there are no chances of recovery, a South Carolina living will form may be filled to declare the individual’s desire to die a natural death. By filling out this form, the individual will be deciding whether or not to be given nutrients and water via artificial facilities or whether or not they would like life support. This form should be signed in the presence of a notary public and two witnesses (see § 44-77-40(2))
You are to fill in the declarant’s full name, SSN, and Home address (including his/her city and county of residence within the state). Following this, you will be required to enter the date the form was filled.
The Declarant is then to go through and agree with the statement of whether or not they would be receiving life-supporting treatments.
In the boxes that follow, the principal is to make their choices by making their mark on the boxes that represent the kind of end-of-life treatments they would like to receive.
In the next section of this form, you are to select an agent who would not only help in achieving your end-of-life desires but would also have the authority to take back your choices made on this form in certain situations. You will be required to enter the agent’s complete name and home/mailing address.
To make this document legal, you will be required to provide two witnesses who would review your decisions and then, imprint their signatures at the end of the document.
Finally, a notary public is to stand as a witness to all signatures imprinted on this document. This proves the authenticity of this document.
