CARROLL, J. The insurer appeals from a decision in which an administrative judge awarded the claimant § 31 benefits for her husband's 1998 death due to a 1978 industrial injury. For the reasons that follow, we reverse the decision in part, and award the § 31 benefits at the rate of compensation applicable to the February 17, 1978 injury, in addition to cost-of-living adjustments under § 34B based on that date of injury.
