Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you.

You can try a small estate affidavit.You mail them the affidavit and the check and ask that it be reissued in your name if you are sole heir or names if there are more.This way you can then deposit the reissued check and avoid more costly probate.

Here is self help and affidavit to walk you through it.This is the cheapest way I would try this first.See if they will not just reissue the check.
