In New Jersey, Workers’ Compensation death benefits provide financial support to dependents of a worker who dies as a result of a work-related injury or illness. Here’s an overview of how these benefits typically work:
Funeral Expenses: The employer or their insurance carrier usually covers reasonable funeral and burial expenses, up to a certain limit.
Dependency Benefits: Dependents of the deceased worker, such as a spouse, children, or other financially dependent relatives, may be eligible for ongoing financial support. The amount of these benefits is typically a percentage of the worker’s average weekly wage, subject to state-mandated maximum and minimum limits.
Dependency benefits are usually paid out on a weekly or bi-weekly basis for a specified period or until certain conditions are met. For example, a surviving spouse may receive benefits until they remarry or reach a certain age, and children may receive benefits until they reach adulthood or finish their education.
Dependents eligible for these benefits typically include spouses, children, and sometimes other relatives who were financially dependent on the deceased worker at the time of their death.
