    Hi there. Like many others both parents were due refunds on their LPA costs. Dad got his very quickly, but mum had passed away just before the refunds were announced. Over a year on and still no refund. Has anyone else got theirs for someone who died?

    I can't chase as I'm not executor but my brother calls every few weeks and just occasionally gets a letter saying there's a backlog. Is anyone else in the same boat?

    I applied for dad post death when the refund scheme was announced and although it took a while came through to executor account in about 8 weeks or so after applying.

    It took ages last year, but that was when the scheme had just started - maybe they have more applications now. I have to say, they weren't very organised then, and the process for someone deceased is not particularly clever, but they got there in the end.
