If you’re one of the 20 to 30 percent of Americans1 who have an advance directive such as a living will, then you’re way ahead of the curve. But did you know that when caregivers need to access advance directives to make crucial decisions, the directives usually can't be located? This happens in over 70% of such situations. 2

Directives Online can ensure that doesn't happen. We bridge the gap between your medical directives and the professionals providing your care with simple and immediate access to directives, emergency contacts, and basic medical information. Family members and care providers alike know exactly what you want during your most vulnerable times.

In addition to providing access to your advance directives, Directives Online also empowers you to leave loved ones a clear picture or map of your estate. Get peace of mind knowing that critical legal documents, such as your will, trust, POA, real estate deeds, and life insurance policy, are all in one place and easily viewable by those you trust to carry out your wishes.

With over 20 years of experience in healthcare, technology, and estate planning, CEO Rich Martin knows firsthand the importance of accessible healthcare directives and estate documents. An avid mountaineer and explorer, Rich has climbed 2 of the 7 summits and participated in a North Pole Expedition. His hobby has required him to help prepare for emergencies on the mountain and off by putting advance directives and estate documents in a readily accessible and secure online depository.

Closer to home, Rich has seen how confusing estate situations get while caring for terminally ill loved ones whose estate documents are in disorder. These experiences have inspired Rich to create Directives Online, to which he brings the same passion and dedicated preparedness that has characterized his mountaineering adventures all over the globe.
