Good Morning.

If your mother does not accept the inheritance then it si a disposal of an asset and she will lose the pension.

It has to go to your mother as she is the one that is entitled because he left no will and the house will have to be sold and the mortgage paid out.

If she does not take it and disposes of it then she will lose the pension.
