Under the league’s Surviving Child benefit, Zoey will receive $9,000 per month for the next 48 months, and at least $4,000 per month from age 4 until she turns 18, or 23 if she goes to college.
Belcher’s beneficiaries also will receive a life insurance payment of $1.2 million as well as money from savings accounts set up through the league. The identities of the beneficiaries are kept private.
For the next five years Zoey will also be covered under the league’s health care benefits plan.
Yesterday evening after holding a 90-minute practice the Kansas City Chiefs boarded four charter buses to attend a memorial service for Belcher, 25. The details of the arrangement have not been made public.
