    Pension Credit Overpayment (Deceased Estate) 24th Aug 07 at 6:05 PM
    Advice from you lovely people please,
    As some of you may or may not know my dad passed away end of April, leaving his whole estate to me, with his solicitor as executor.
    Anyway probate has now been granted, I received a call from the Solicitor today saying that all dads details had been sent away to DWP, a letter from the DWp had arrived today saying that Dad had not declared to them since 2003 that he had more savings than he actually had. He had an account with 3000 in it with National Savings which he never told anyone about. At the time of his death his savings were no more than 13000.
    What will happen and how much will have to be paid back (hundreds or MORE )
