BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Lawmakers aim to continue death benefits to remarried spouses

death benefits

Delaware state senators on Tuesday unanimously passed legislation that would expand death benefits for surviving spouses of workers who die on the job.

As stated, S.B. 123 would allow “all surviving spouses of persons killed in the course and scope of employment to receive the same level of death benefits as the surviving spouses of those persons …  in the event that the surviving spouse remarries.”

This expansion of the death benefit beyond the surviving spouses of those persons would result in all surviving spouses, who decide to remarry, being treated equally under the state’s workers compensation laws, according to the bill.

The bill now heads to state House of Representatives for consideration.
