Boeing offers 737 MAX crash victims' families $213,242

Boeing will pay the families of 346 people killed in two 737 MAX crashes $US144,500 ($213,242) each from a $US50 million financial assistance fund announced in July, the fund's administrators have said.

The fund, overseen by Washington lawyers Ken Feinberg and Camille S Biros, will begin accepting claims from family members immediately.

Family members will not be required to waive or release the right to litigate as a condition of participation.

The 737 MAX has been grounded since March after fatal crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

Claims must be postmarked no later than December 31, the fund said.

Pius Adesanmi, a Nigerian professor was one of the victims of the crashes.
