61 P.S. § 951. Salary; medical expenses; workmen’s compensation; widow’s and

minors’ benefits

Any employe of a State penal or correctional institution under the Bureau of Correction of the

Department of Justice and any employe of a State mental hospital or Youth Development Center

under the Department of Public Welfare, who is injured during the course of his employment by an act

of any inmate or any person confined in such institution or by any person who has been committed to

such institution by any court of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or by any provision of the “Mental

Health Act” and any employe of County Boards of Assistance injured by act of an applicant for or

recipient of public assistance and any employe of the Department of Public Welfare who has been

assigned to or who has volunteered to join the fire fighting force of any institution of the Department of

Public Welfare injured while carrying out fire fighting duties, shall be paid, by the Commonwealth of

Pennsylvania, his full salary, until the disability arising therefrom no longer prevents his return as an

employe of such department, board or institution at a salary equal to that earned by him at the time of

his injury.

All medical and hospital expenses incurred in connection with any such injury shall be paid by the

Commonwealth of Pennsylvania until the disability arising from such injury no longer prevents his return

as an employe of such department, board or institution at a salary equal to that earned by him at the

time of his injury.

During the time salary for such disability shall be paid by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania any

workmen’s compensation received or collected for such period shall be turned over to the

Commonwealth and paid into the General Fund, and if such payment shall not be so made, the amount

so due the Commonwealth shall be deducted from any salary then or thereafter becoming due and

owing.

The widow and minor dependents of any employe who dies within one year as a result of such injuries

shall be paid benefits equal to fifty per cent of the full salary of the deceased employe.

When a widow and minor dependents not in her custody are entitled to payments, one-half of such

payments shall be paid to the widow and one-half to the dependents. In every case the amount payable

to minor dependents shall be divided equally among them and be paid to the persons or institutions

having custody of them.

In the case of a widow or a widow with minor dependents in her custody, such benefits shall terminate

when such widow remarries. In the case of minor dependents, except when in the custody of a

remarried widow, such benefits shall terminate when all of the minor dependents become eighteen

years of age. Neither a widow nor minor dependents shall receive any benefits under this act while

receiving benefits under the Federal Social Security Law. The benefits provided by this act shall be

reduced by the amount of any workmen’s compensation benefits received or collected by any such

widow or minor dependents because of the same injury. Payments for the benefit of minor dependents

shall be made to the person having legal custody of them.

Act 1959-632, P.L. 1718, § 1, approved Dec. 8, 1959, eff. immediately; Act 1961-534, P.L. 1225, § 1, approved Sept. 2, 1961, eff. immediately.
