1099int issued in her name and ssn

My spouse passed in 2022, I filed a final  joint tax  return for the year , than opened an estate and applied for an EIN, which I received. This was forwarded to the payer, so I thought. I received a 1099int from her escrow account which is  solely in her name, with her SSN rather than the EIN. Because the amount is minimal (under $11.00) I'm at a loss what to do. that is the only taxable income that was received, well below the $600.00 estate income filing requirement. Is the EIN and SSN intertwined with the IRS  so it  is received correctly? If so can I just forget about it?

Yes.  You can just ignore that 1099-INT.

Can you elaborate on it alittle further. It's my understanding that her social security number became void when she passed. I had afew other questions in my posting as well.

thank you

The social security number and employer identification numbers are not intertwined. The IRS will associate the income reported on the 1099 form with the deceased individual's personal tax return, but since the income is below the minimum filing requirement, they will not expect a tax return to be filed and one does not have to be filed. So, you don't need to report the income anywhere. I am sorry for your loss.
