Pension Credit

All about money
When my father died in June my mother became the sole owner of their joint bank account and now has 26k in cash. In addition to her old age pension she receives 50% of my fathers old occupational pension which they say puts her over the limit for eligibility for Pension Credit and was quickly stopped.
Is pension credit eligibility calculated by income alone or are savings also taken into account. If so, what is the savings limit.
Sorry if this is a fundamental question but Im not so hot on such matters.
