E. Fenelon. The 1945 legislature granted in- creased payments to both pension- ers and other‘dependents. Section 65-0517 was changed to the weekly wage of the deceased employee, which forms the basis for the payment to the pensxoner. The old law read: “The weekly wages of the deceased employee shall be considered to have been not more than $30 nor less than $18, but the total weekly com— pensation shall not exceed the weekly wages of the deceased.’ The new law reads: “The weekly?Y w es of the deceased emp oy shill be considered to have been not more than $35 and not less than $26. The increase in pay— ments resulting from the enlarge- ment of the salary shall be pay- able to all pensioners and depen- dents afiected thereby.” Note that the salary base has been increased from “not more than $30 nor less than $18” to “not more than $35 and not less than 95'" Where a. widow before received. the maximum of $10.50 per week and $3 per week for each child—— but not to exceed $20 per week—— the new act increases this to $12.25 and $3.50, with a maximum of $23.33. Section 65-0525— Under the old law a, lump sum payable to a widow was limited to 416 weeks. Under the new amendment a widow receiving a full lump sum will be taken off the records for a period of 416 weeks butfit the ex- piration of the 416 weeks if tn: beneficiary is still alive and no remarried, the Bureau, in its cis- cretion, may again assume liability and resume pension payments.
