Regarding gratuity act (pvt. company) and epfo in death case

My husband died in August 2019. He was serving in a private limited company and covered under EPFO scheme. We lived with our mother-in-law and my late husband has a little brother.
Please help me to know that after his death, without filing any nominations:
1. Who is eligible to get EPFO payments like Balance in my husband's account and Insurance as applicable under EDLI.
Me or my mother-in-law or we both get equal shares?
2. Who will get the gratuity/bonus from the company without a nomination filed?
The company are pressing me to write that I agree to pay 50% dues from company to my mother-in-law and say that If i dont do it, Then i'll not get anything.
Whether this will also be divided equally amongs us two i.e. me and my mother-in-law.?
3. About pension from EPFO?
My husband served in Kundli, Sonipat, haryana. I am living in delhi with parents now. My email id is (brother's id)
Please help.
I have no kids and have no income source to survive.
