The death benefits available to surviving dependents equal two-thirds of their average weekly wage. They continue for different amounts of time depending of their relationship to the deceased. A spouse will get such benefits for the rest of his or her life or until they remarry. Dependent children can receive benefits until they reach the age of 18 unless they are still in school, in which case the benefits may continue until they are 21. The employer will pay for funeral and burial services as well as any medical expenses required prior to their death. For more information and help to file for and receive all the benefits you deserve, call our offices for an appointment.
