Funeral assistance

If an occupational accident or disease leads to a fatality, funeral assistance is paid to the decedent’s estate under workers’ compensation insurance. 

The amount of funeral assistant is fixed and independent of the injured person’s level of income or costs arising from the funeral.   

The amount of funeral assistance is revised annually and paid in the amount determined for the year of the injured person’s death.  

In addition, compensation is paid for necessary and reasonable costs of transporting the deceased from the place of death to his or her place of domicile.
