smani_1974My friend died on natural death at home and also he has esic coverage. So his wife eligible for dependant benefits or not?
Harsh Kumar MehtaDear member, under provisions of ESI Act, 1948 and rules/regulations framed therein only deaths due to accidents or injuries occurred in the course of employment and out of work are covered. I think, deaths due to natural causes are not treated as accidents and no dependent benefit is payable.
