82.1. However, the Minister of Employment and Social Solidarity may, in the cases and on the conditions prescribed by regulation, pay the annual benefit by making advance monthly payments if, according to the estimation made on the basis of the information supplied by the adult, the amount thus estimated exceeds the minimum amount determined by regulation.
The benefit is estimated by making the computation provided for in section 73 and, for the purpose of computing the net total income of a family under section 79.3, the amount of the benefits granted under a financial assistance program is the amount prescribed by regulation. In establishing the net total income, the Minister may also disregard all amounts deductible under the Taxation Act (chapter I-3) in the computation of that income.
Such advance monthly payments constitute advances on the annual benefit.
