If a family member or loved one is killed on the job, you are entitled to death benefits under the workers’ compensation laws. These death benefits exist to provide monetary benefits to you, the surviving spouse or child of the deceased. In terms of actual amount and length of payments, these workers’ compensation death benefits differ from a typical workers’ compensation injury claim.
