Widow has 1099-R in deceased husband's name & SSN

The issuing Fidelity say that it cannot be corrected into her name. (He died in June 2018 and they were promptly informed. They switched to her name halfway thru 2019.) Do I report in her name, both distribution and federal withholding even if SSN's don't match?

Yes, assuming that she received all the money.
