How Much Can A Family Collect In Compensation?
Through filing for workers’ compensation, we may be able to point you toward substantial financial assistance, known as death benefits. Spouses and children are often able to receive death benefits, which are workers’ compensation payments made to the family left behind.
To receive death benefits:
- You must have been wholly or mostly financially reliant on the deceased.
- You must file a claim within a certain amount of time.
The duration of the payments depends on each family situation. A minor child may no longer receive the payments after he or she turns 18. A disabled spouse may be able to receive payments through to his or her end of life.
