Default death benefits

my husband had died. he left so many issues on personal loan, credit issues in his office.

now he has death benefits. his former boss as if implying that i offset those debts out of his death benefits.

is it legal to offset the debts/loans of a dead person from his death benefits?

am i compelled to pay for the loans/debts of my dead husband?

Default Re: death benefits

Death benefits cannot be hold to reimburse debts of a deceased person. But the deceased person’s legal heirs are liable to repay the debts up to what they inherit.

I wish to inform you that Art. 194 of the Labor Code deals with the Death Benefits. These are to be paid to the beneficiaries and may not be offset against any loans of the deceased by the employer.
