Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Pennsylvania

Recently my ex-mother in -law died (we remained extremely close). She told me prior to her death that she left me money. From talking to her, I came to believe I was the beneficiary on a bank account. After the funeral, my son told me Eric (her son and executor) found a bank account he did not know about before her death , and that I was the beneficiary of it. He did not feel I should get anything. He and my ex-husband argued about this in front of my son. My son came to me. She died Jan 28. I am told it is over $20,000, money I could really use, being out of work for over 8 months. Her death occured in Bergen County, NJ and I live in PA. What do I do?
