Does the husband’s son inherit from the wife of his father?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
A woman died and left behind some wealth from a pension that was originally for her husband, and passed to her after he died. Does the son of her husband have any right to this wealth?

Answer:
Praise be to Allah

If the wife was entitled to the pension, then whatever she took possession of from it became her property alone, and it is not permissible for anyone to dispose of it or any part of it except with her permission. 

See the answer to question no. 147802

If she has died and she had saved up some of this pension, then this money and whatever else she left behind becomes the right of her heirs who survived her, and the heirs of her husband have no right to any of it. 

The husband’s son does not inherit anything from the wife of his father, so he has no right to this money unless his father’s wife bequeathed something to him. 

And Allah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
