How to handle pension overpayment to an insolvent estate?
Last week, I received a letter from one of his previous employers saying overpaid his pension by making a deposit after he died. They've asked the estate to return the payment of $610.
Does this debt take some sort of priority since it was incurred after he died? Or should I handle it like the other creditors who have been requesting payment?

What happened to the money they deposited ? It should be available in the account for them to retrieve it. Whoever is in possession of the funds needs to return the money to the employer. This is not a creditor claim since it is funds he received after his death that he was not eligible to receive.
