Under certain state compensation laws, if a worker dies because of a work-related accident or illness, his or her spouse and dependents may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation death benefits equal to 70 percent of the average weekly earnings for the previous 12 months.
However, the maximum amount of total payments is set annually by the state. If death benefit payments are to be divided among eligible dependents, the actual percentage paid to each party will be determined in a hearing before a workers’ compensation judge.
