Your rights as a registered donor

IN INDIANA, YOUR DONATION DECISION IS HONORED.

Indiana's Donor Choice Law* allows you to decide if you want to donate organs, tissue and eyes in the event of your death. If your donation decision is properly documented either on your driver's license, on this website or on your personal legal documents, your wishes will be carried out at the time of your death. If you are over 18, your family cannot interfere with your decision to donate. If you are under 18, you can still register your decision to donate, but your parents or legal guardian must give permission at the time of your death.

In Indiana, there are two ways that you can register your donation decision:

Donate Life Indiana maintains this registry as a public health service. It gives you a legal means of declaring your wish to donate anatomical gifts that save or enhance the lives of recipients.

REMEMBER TO INFORM YOUR FAMILY OF YOUR DECISION.

It is always important to tell your family and friends about your donation decision. Click here to register your donation decision and inform your family.

SHOULD I DECLARE MY DECISION ON MY DRIVER'S LICENSE AND ON THIS SITE?

Your Indiana Driver License is an excellent way to declare your decision to donate. You do not have to register through both portals of entry. If your Indiana driver license has a red heart on the front, you have already registered to be a donor.
