This portal contains information regarding rights, mostly from the institue for social security, of the family members of a work injury victim who had passed away.

The National Insurance Institute will help guide the family, starting from the first days following their loved one's death, providing assistance for burial fees and a grant following decease, through financial grants to be provided at different points in their lives, to funding of vocational rehabilitation for widows and widowers to assist them in earning a living.

Family members of someone who had work injury insurance and died as the result of a work injury, are entitled under certain conditions to receive a dependents' pension to help them with their daily expenses.

If not approved for a dependents' pension, they may be entitled to an equity grant.
