When a worker dies due to an on-the-job injury or occupational disease or illness, and the insurer accepts the claim, Oregon law requires insurers to make monthly payments to the worker’s spouse, children, and other eligible beneficiaries. The insurer will pay for disposition and funeral expenses subject to a maximum amount. If you die while receiving permanent total disability benefits, your spouse or other eligible beneficiaries may be entitled to continuing benefits.
