Georgia workers' compensation law provides for dependency benefits for the spouse and/or children of an employee who is killed as a result of a workplace accident. The amount of the weekly benefit is based on the amount of money the employee made prior to his or her death. Further, the length of time a dependent is entitled to receive weekly benefits varies based on the age of the dependent children or spouse.
