  515.625.  Distribution of claims. — 1.  Claims not disallowed by the court shall receive distribution under sections 515.500 to 515.665 in the order of priority under subdivisions (1) to (8) of this subsection* and, with the exception of subdivisions (1) to (3) of this subsection, on a pro rata basis:

  (1)  Any secured creditor that is duly perfected under applicable law, whether or not such secured creditor has filed a proof of claim, shall receive the proceeds from the disposition of the estate property that secures its claim.  However, the receiver may recover from estate property secured by a lien or the proceeds thereof the reasonable, necessary expenses of preserving, protecting, or disposing of the estate property to the extent of any benefit to a duly perfected secured creditor.  If and to the extent that the proceeds are less than the amount of a duly perfected secured creditor's claim or a duly perfected secured creditor's lien is avoided on any basis, the duly perfected secured creditor's claim is an unsecured claim under subdivision (8) of this subsection.  Duly perfected secured claims shall be paid from the proceeds in accordance with their respective priorities under otherwise applicable law;

  (2)  Actual, necessary costs and expenses incurred during the administration of the receivership, other than those expenses allowable under subdivision (1) of this subsection, including allowed fees and reimbursement of reasonable charges and expenses of the receiver and professional persons employed by the receiver.  Notwithstanding subdivision (1) of this subsection, expenses incurred during the administration of the estate have priority over the secured claim of any secured creditor obtaining or consenting to the appointment of the receiver;

  (3)  A secured creditor that is not duly perfected under applicable law shall receive the proceeds from the disposition of the estate property that secures its claim if and to the extent that unsecured claims are made subject to those liens under applicable law;

  (4)  Claims for wages, salaries, or commissions, including vacation, severance, and sick leave pay, or contributions to an employee benefit plan earned by the claimant within one hundred eighty days of the date of appointment of the receiver or the cessation of any business relating to the receivership, whichever occurs first, but only to the extent of ten thousand nine hundred fifty dollars;

  (5)  Unsecured claims, to the extent of two thousand four hundred twenty-five dollars for each natural person, arising from the deposit with the person debtor before the date of appointment of the receiver of money in connection with the purchase, lease, or rental of estate property or the purchase of services for personal, family, or household use that were not delivered or provided;

  (6)  Claims for a marital, family, or other support debt, but not to the extent that the debt is assigned to another person, voluntarily, by operation of law, or otherwise; or  includes a liability designated as a support obligation unless that liability is actually in the nature of a support obligation;

  (7)  Unsecured claims of governmental units for taxes which accrued prior to the date of appointment of the receiver;

  (8)  Other unsecured claims.

  2.  If all of the classes under subsection 1 of this section have been paid in full, any residue shall be paid to the debtor.
