Survivor's benefits[edit]

Here's something I'm working on:

Smith received partial survivors' benefits from the City of San Francisco, though he only received $5,500 of the $50,000 that California law stated dependents of those killed on the job can receive; they no longer lived together but Milk still paid his rent and utilities.[1]

The article says that Smith received benefits, subject to appeal. However, his papers at the SF Public Library make reference to Worker's Compensation Appeals Board (1978-1983), so I'm wondering if he won or lost this one.--Larrybob (talk) 01:26, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
