Anyone 16 or older can join the New York State Donate Life Registry.
- If a 16 or 17 year old is in the Registry, it alerts their parents or legal guardians to their wishes. They, the parents or legal guardians, have the final say regarding whether donation can occur in this situation.
- Once an individual turns 18, their consent to donate can only be reversed by him or herself.
- No one is too old to enroll in the New York State Donate Life Registry.
