She was due to go on holiday to ibiza with him the week after he died but had to cancel for obvious reasons. She is looking to claim back the money through holiday insurance. Would she have to declare it to the OR/courts? Would they let her keep the money to book a holiday later and go with a friend seeing as the money for the holiday was a 40th birthday gift from her partners mother?
I would not over complicate the issue and risk losing the money by mentioning it..

I would say it was prudent to either sit on the cheque until your new bank account is open after you have petitioned or do not petition until after this cheque has cleared allowing you to do as recomended and withdraw all of your funds from your bank account before petitioning.
to do anything else will in all probability result in you losing the money.
