What Expenses are Covered Under Workers' Compensation Death Benefits?

The loss of a loved one is an emotionally devastating event, made even more challenging by the financial impact it can bring. In Pennsylvania, workers’ compensation death benefits are designed to provide some level of financial relief in the aftermath of a work-related death.

These benefits typically cover:

  • Death Benefits: A percentage of the deceased worker’s wages is provided to eligible dependents, usually the spouse and minor children. These benefits aim to offset the loss of income that the family was depending on.
  • Funeral Expenses: The emotional toll of funeral arrangements can be compounded by the associated costs. To help alleviate this, workers’ compensation death benefits in Pennsylvania cover up to $7,000 in funeral expenses.
  • Medical Costs: Any medical costs incurred as a result of the accident or illness leading to the worker’s death are generally covered. This includes hospital stays, treatments, medications, and any necessary medical equipment.

Remember the specifics of what is covered can vary based on individual circumstances and the details of the case. Thankfully, Paula Robinson can be your guide to help you navigate these complexities. She’s committed to providing you with the information and support you need during this difficult time, ensuring your family receives the full benefits you are entitled to.

Eligibility for Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits in PA

Eligibility for workers’ compensation death benefits is determined by the relationship to the deceased worker and their dependency status. The primary beneficiaries are typically the spouse and minor children of the deceased. In some cases, dependent adult children or parents may also be eligible.

In Pennsylvania, workers’ compensation also covers funeral expenses up to $7,000. While no amount of money can replace a family member, these benefits aim to provide some financial relief and ensure that the dignity and respect of your loved one are upheld.

It’s important to note that eligibility may extend beyond immediate family in certain circumstances. If the deceased worker did not have a spouse or children, dependent parents, brothers, and sisters might be eligible for benefits.
