138.3. For the purpose of calculating a benefit, a death benefit received by an independent adult or a member of the family is excluded according to the conditions set out in sections 138.1 and 138.2. The amount referred to in section 138.1 includes the death benefit.
Despite the foregoing, for the exclusion to apply to a death benefit, a lump sum or the first instalment of any lump sum must have been received during a month in which the independent adult or the family is a recipient under a last resort financial assistance program, otherwise than pursuant to section 49 of the Act, or the Aim for Employment Program, or during a month in which the independent adult or the family was eligible to receive dental and pharmaceutical services pursuant to section 48. The exclusion applies even if the benefit paid for that month is later claimed in its entirety by the Minister, unless the claim is made following a false declaration, up to the date on which a formal repayment notice was sent by the Minister pursuant to section 97 of the Act.
