1. Dear member, funeral expenses can be claimed by the eldest surviving member of the family of deceased Insured Person, or as mentioned in said Act (Section 46(f) of ESI Act, 1948) and present maximum rate of such reimbursement is Rs.10,000/-.(Rule 59 of ESI Central (Rules), 1950.

2. The person who want to claim expenses must have the documents viz. Identity Card of deceased insured person, original death certificate etc. The appropriate office to make the payment of such expenses/amounts is the relevant Branch Office to which the said deceased insured person was attached. Therefore, the family member (or claimant) of the deceased insured person can contact the said office, if desired.

3.Further Pension ( which is called as Dependant Benefit in said Act) is payable only in accident cases occurred in the course and out of employment.

4. Further, you can download relevant information/guidance material from the website of ESIC, online link of the same is mentioned as follows:-

Dear 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.
