Yes she gets both.  You can keep the first one.  Are you filing a Joint return for 2020?

 

For deceased individuals see the second question under Eligibility.  If they died in 2020 they still get it.

my mom was widowed so it will be a separate return.  So i guess i can deposit her first stimulus into the estate and take the second stimulus in her 2020 tax return. thanks for your help.
