Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits

Passionately Advocating for Justice

As tragic as it is, sometimes death occurs in the workplace. When this happens, the worker’s surviving dependents are eligible to receive death benefits, so as to support the worker’s spouse, children, or other dependents who relied on that worker for any financial purposes. Children may be recipients of these benefits until they reach 18, or perhaps longer if they are enrolled in college or university.

While the exact percentage of workers’ compensation death benefits differ depending on the financial situation of those on the receiving end of the benefits, the purpose is to closely mimic the earning income of the deceased. No one prepares for such an unexpected and distressing loss, and these benefits are meant to cushion that loss with at least some form of financial security.

Death benefits typically cover the following expenses, though it may vary case to case:

  • Medical treatment of the deceased
  • Wage replacement
  • Temporary total disability payments
  • Burial allowance
