Employee death compensation at Google: 50% salary to spouse and $1000 to children per month
Google has been one of the best multinational private companies across the world. Not only the employees present in the organization get a handsome salary, but also receive generous benefits in case of their death.

Google also gives monthly compensation to the kids of the employers if they die during service period.
Google provides its employees and loved ones with a world-class benefits experience. It also focuses on supporting their physical, financial, and emotional wellbeing. If an employee dies during his/her service period, their spouse gets paid half of their salary. The compensation (paying half the salary to spouse) will be done for a period of the next 10 years.
In case the employee has kids, they will be paid $1000 per month until they reach the age 19 or 23 for full-time students. The above-mentioned benefits have been reported and cross-checked by various international media including CNN and Forbes. Google claims that its philosophy is the same in every place Googlers work. However, their benefits may vary by office or country.
The benefits Google provides to their staff and their family are designed to enhance their health and wellbeing. The company ensures that the benefits make it easy for their employees to take good care of themselves in the present situation as well as in the future.
