    What happens if employee dies? Who can claim?

    Tuesday 2nd May 2017

    Death benefits may be payable if an employee dies in the course and scope of his employment or if his death was the result of complications from a work injury and/or treatment for a work injury. A surviving spouse and dependents of the deceased are the first in line for payment fo death benefits. Parents of the employee who passed away will be the beneficiaries in the absence of a spouse and/or dependents. Aside from indemnity or wage benefits, funeral expenses are covered by the employer’s insurance company in an amount not exceeding $8,500.
