§ 298. CLAIMS AGAINST ESTATES OF DECEDENTS. (a) Time for Presentation of Claims. A claim may be presented to the personal representative at any time before the estate is closed if suit on the claim has not been barred by the general statutes of limitation. If a claim of an unsecured creditor for money is not presented within four months after the date of receipt of the notice permitted by Section 294(d), the claim is barred. (b) Claims Barred by Limitation Not to Be Allowed or Approved. No claims for money against a decedent, or against the estate of the decedent, on which a suit is barred under Subsection (a) of this section, Section 313, or Section 317(a) or by a general statute of limitation applicable thereto shall be allowed by a personal representative. If allowed by the representative and the court is satisfied that the claim is barred or that limitation has run, the claim shall be disapproved. Acts 1955, 54th Leg., p. 88, ch. 55, eff.
