Caring Assistance If You Lost A Family Member
If your loved one died in a work-related accident, you have to deal with the grief and the loss of income. How will you pay all the household bills if the head of your household is gone? In these tragic cases, workers' compensation can provide death benefits to those left behind.
You can usually expect to start receiving money a year after your family member's death. If the deceased employee was a parent, the benefits will typically continue until his or her youngest child turns 18. Plus, your family can receive money to cover funeral costs.
