Inheritance and eligibility for Zakāh

A lady’s husband passed away and there is some money in her husband’s bank account which the lady will receive as inheritance after a few months. However at current she is otherwise worthy of Zakāh. Would that wealth make her ineligible to receive Zakāh?

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
