Have you lost a loved one in an Ottawa accident?
We are sorry and we want to help. Did you know your Ontario accident benefits cover death and funeral benefits, to help cover some of your costs ?
The standard amount of death and funeral benefits in Ontario is $25,000 to an eligible spouse and $10,000 to each dependant.
Maximum compensation for funeral expenses ?
There is also a maximum of $6,000 for expenses incurred for a funeral. In 2010, The Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) introduced optional benefits for purchase. In essence, if you want to pay a slightly higher premium each month, you could increase your death and funeral benefits to $50,000 to your eligible spouse, $20,000 to each dependant, and $8,000 for funeral expenses. No one wants to have to think about the unthinkable. That is why purchasing these additional benefits is a tough thing to consider. May you never need to access these death and funeral benefits. If you do, we are sorry and we are here to help. For a complete list of all benefits and expenses covered visit our wrongful death compensation page.
