Did You Know That When A Google Employee Dies…


Did You Know That When A Google Employee Dies…

Google is famous for having a great company policy towards its employees. They are provided with different kind of benefits such as fitness subscriptions, free food, car washes, laundry service and many more. Now they are offering something quite unique to their US employees : when a person passes away, their  spouse would receive 10 years of half pay. And this is not all Google is offering : the children of a deceased employee will be paid $1000 per month until they are 19 years old with the option of extending the time period if the child is in full time school.
Google stated the new policy is meant to ensure a family’s well being in case of unpredictable events such as sudden death, although the company would not directly benefit from it. Google’s management also pointed out that the main purpose of the policy is not to attract more potential candidates but it is yet considered as a positive side effect.


  1. Our government provides pension up to 75000 pm to its ex-employee's (those who are still alive) . That way our government is Google da Baap !

    1. शायद आपने ठीक से पढ़ा नहीं या पढ़ना नहीं चाहा ।
      जीते जी जो मिलता होगा गूगल एम्प्लॉई को वो तो शायद कल्पनातीत ही होगा, लेकिन बात यहाँ मरने के बाद की हो रही है, हो सकता है हमारी सरकार गूगल के बाप हों, लेकिन बेटा अगर कुछ अच्छा करे तो बाप को खुश होना चाहिए :)

    2. उत्तर प्रदेश सरकार का कोई कर्मचारी यदि सेवा में रहते हुए मर जाता है तो उसकी पत्नी/ पति या आश्रित बच्चे को सरकारी नौकरी मिलने की गारंटी है। पारिवारिक पेंशन तो मिलती ही है। यदि पत्नी नहीं है तो बच्चों को पच्चीस साल की उम्र तक पेंशन। कई बच्चे हैं तो पच्चीस साल की उम्र पूरा हो जाने पर उससे छोटे वाले को। यदि पुत्री है तो उसे तबतक पेंशन मिलती रहेगी जबतक उसकी शादी नहीं हो जाती। यदि वह आजीवन शादी नहीं कर पाती है तो उसे आजीवन पेंशन मिलती रहेगी। कोई भी प्राइवेट कंपनी सेवालाभों के मामले में वेलफेयर स्टेट का मुकाबला नहीं कर सकती।

    3. सिद्धार्थ जी, ये सच है कि पश्चिम में किसी कर्मचारी के मरणोंपरांत उसके परिवार के किसी सदस्य को नौकरी देने का कोई प्रावधान नहीं है।लेकिन यह भी सच है कि गूगल एक प्राईवेट कंपनी है और भारत की प्राईवेट कंपनियों से ही इसकी तुलना की जानी चाहिए न कि सरकार से। पश्चिमी सरकारों ने नागरिकों के लिए इतनी सुविधाएँ दी हुईं हैं कि उनके लिए मुझे एक पोस्ट ही लिखना पड़ेगा।

    4. मरने के बाद मरने वाले की पत्नी को भी आधी पेंशन दी जाती है

      वैसे हम व्यक्तिगत रूप से पेंशन के मुरीद नहीं है , कम से कम बूढ़ों को इतनी ज्यादा पेंशन तो नहीं मिलनी चाहिए, ख़ास तौर से तब जब कई प्राइवेट कंपनियों में कड़ी मेहनत करने के बाद करोड़ों लोगों को बमुश्किल १०-१५ हज़ार पगार भी नसीब नहीं होती। अच्छी पगार दो और जब तक नौकरी हो तब तक दो, बाकी आदमी की अपनी बचत, वो कितना बचा ले। ।

      बाकी गूगल कि नीयत अच्छी है, इसमे कोई शक नहीं , बाप को बेटे पर बेशक नाज़ होना चाहिए और है :)

      लिखते रहिये।

    5. in private sector Tata employee/ family is best protected
      and many indian companies have pledged wealth for welfare purposes

      P.N.C. Menon 64
      Plans to give away half his estimated $435 million fortune though he hasn’t signed the Giving Pledge. “I decided this 25 years ago,” says the real estate baron. “It’s nothing new.” The Sri Kurumba Trust, his family’s charitable arm, adopted 4 villages in his native Kerala state in 2006 and helps families with a monthly income below $90. On a 10-acre site it runs Sobha Hermitage, a home for senior citizens and young widows; Sobha Academy, a free school for more than 700 poor children; and a medical center. The trust also provides free meals and conducts mass weddings.

      Vineet Nayar 51
      Sold some shares in the outsourcing company in 2010 for $7.8 million and the rest of his stake for $24 million last year. Proceeds went mostly to Sampark, a charity started with his wife, Anupama, in 2004 with a mission to “create a million smiles.” It works with local governments to improve schools, fund social ventures and expand water supply. The author and management thinker stepped down as HCL’s chief executive in January and now spends most of his time on his charity.

      Rohinton “Ronnie” Screwvala 56
      Entertainment mogul with a string of Bollywood hits plans to spend $180 million over 5 years to uplift 1 million villagers in the western state of Maharashtra. Half will come from him, half from Indian and overseas philanthropists. Goal is to increase access to education, health care and clean water. Aiming to make the villagers self-sufficient, he’s looking at increasing agricultural yields and connecting the villages with businesses and nonprofit organizations. His foundation–started more than 20 years ago and rechristened as Swades (or “H omeland”) last year–is already working with 1,800 villages in the state.

      Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw 60
      Biotech entrepreneur pledges to give away 75% of her wealth. Focuses on cancer care and research, and low-cost health care. Click here for Shaw’s story.

  2. आखिर दुनिया की सबसे सुविधासम्‍पन्‍न कम्‍पनी जो है। तो ऐसा होगा ही।

    1. बिलकुल सही कहा विकेश, दुनिया के गिने-चुने संपन्न कम्पनियों में से एक है गूगल।

  3. good attitude by google. hats off. why compare two good policies and try to belittle anyone? any initiative trying to benefit people out of no legal compulsion must be positively appreciated - by anyone. whether private or government.
