When a loved one dies in an on-the-job accident, the emotional devastation cannot be overstated.

What Benefits Are You Entitled To?
In the state of California, death benefits can be awarded to an employee’s “total dependents” and “partial dependents.” If a work accident, illness, or injury results in the death of a worker, the worker’s surviving spouse, children, siblings, parents, and/or other “dependents” (members of the household and/or relatives in the immediate family of the decedent or their spouse).
California workers’ compensation death benefits include:
- Up to $10,000 for funeral and burial expenses, and
- Up to $320,000 to be divided between the deceased worker’s dependents.
In some cases, surviving dependents can receive Social Security death benefits as well. However, there are certain eligibility requirements. For example, the surviving spouse must be 60 years or older. Every situation is different, and we can discuss how the laws apply to your particular circumstances during a free consultation.
