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.
