You will need to check your father's pension documents to see how the benefits are paid. Under social security benefits are only paid if the beneficiary survives the entire month. Consequently, if you die during the month in which you receive your benefit the payment must be returned to SS. Many pension plans are integrated with social security and may have the same provision on what happens to payments made during the month of death. You would have to review the plan terms to see if your father's plan operated the same way.
