Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island

Survivor Benefits


If a worker dies as a result of a compensable workplace injury or illness, the WCB is here to help.

The WCB will assist with the costs of burial and where eligible, survivor benefits may also be paid to a spouse, a child or a dependent of the deceased worker.

If you need information about survivor benefits, please contact us. Our staff are available to assist you. More information is also available in the WCB policy on survivor benefits.
