The benefits, in case of death, shall be paid to one or more dependents of the decedent, or to any other persons, for the benefit of all of the dependents, as may be determined by the commission, successor to the commission, other private carrier or self-insured employer, whichever is applicable, who may apportion the benefits among the dependents in the manner as they consider just and equitable.
