Here is the website for the SSDI -- http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi
After you find your person on the list, at the far right side the column marked "Tools", see SS-5 Letter? Click on it and a letter will be formated which you can then print out. It will automatically print the name of the deceased at the bottomm of that form letter with data, such as their SS number, date of birth and death. After you print out that letter you can sign it and add your address. And, of course, at the top is the mailing address where you will send your letter and check.
You didn't say when your mother was born, but TX began keeping vital records in 1903 and the state required the counties to send duplicate copies to Austin, beginning in 1929. Some were doing so prior to that date, so you might check with State Archives in Austin to see if they have a copy of your mother's birth certificate. Happy Hunting.
