Taxable or Not Taxable

A liitle over 10 years ago I was the only Beneficiary of my Mother's Estate. Within 2 weeks after her death I received the few Mutual Funds she owned. A few months ago(early 2011) I received a SEC Fair Fund settlement check in her name. I was told to send them a Death Certificate and a letters testamentary to get a check in my name but under her social security number. I just received the check in my name but under her social security number. Is this taxable income to be reported on my tax return? Is this part of the original estate I inherited which was under the tax limit in 2001 and therefore no tax is owed. Please supply tax reference info Thanks
