A claim for acceptance of liability for a deceased member's death or for compensation in respect of that death can be made by:

  • a dependant of the deceased member;
  • another person on behalf of that dependant with the dependant's approval;
  • the dependant's legal personal representative; or
  • a person appointed by the MRCC if the dependant is incapable of approving someone to lodge a claim on his or her behalf and has no legal personal representative or has a legal personal representative who will not make a claim.
