Military Workers Get $100K Death Benefit

     WASHINGTON (CN) – Every workers-compensation death benefit to eligible survivors of certain federal employees will be for $100,000, the Labor Department says.
The federal employees at issue, in new regulations under the Federal Employee’s Compensation Act, are those who die of injuries “incurred in connection with service with an Armed Force in a contingency operation.” Survivors who already have received death benefits under another program will not receive the full amount.
     Occupational diseases apply along with traumatic injuries, and it does not matter how long after that injury the employee dies.
