29. Can CMERS continue to collect repayment of an overpayment from my benefit check once I am deceased?

Yes. The obligation to make repayment does not die with the member. If the member has a remaining balance on their overpayment, a claim is filed against the estate to recoup the remaining amount of overpayment.
