Opening Estate Account? Deceased Customer

Answered by: 

Question: 
We have been presented a check payable to "Estate of ***** C/O ****'." This is the only check that will be issued in this manner. Could this be deposited into the deceased person's joint account or does an estate account have to be opened? The check is for $12.00.
Answer: 

Do you want the technical answer or the practical answer. For $12.00, I would turn a blind eye and let it happen.
