benefits due to deceased individuals.
The Director may prescribe regulations to provide for the payment of
benefits which are due and payable, to the legal representative,
dependents, relatives or next of kin of persons since deceased. Such
regulations need not conform with the statutes governing decedent estates,
and such payment shall be deemed a valid payment to the same extent as if
made to the legal representative of the deceased.
