In the event that the named claimant is deceased, their legal heir is now entitled to the refund. You will need to create an Authorization Agreement in the name of the new claimant, and all other forms will need to be in this new claimants name as well. This new claimant will need to provide their Proof of Identification, as well as Proof of Entitlement.
Proof of Entitlement documentation is usually the Death Certificate or a Last Will and Testament.
