176. If a benefit application has been refused or the benefit granted to an independent adult or a family has been reduced or has ceased to be paid because of sums granted under another Act and the Minister or body that paid the sums claims them, in whole or in part, the amount of the benefit granted or that could have been granted for the months covered by the claim is recalculated, on a request made within 30 days after receipt of the claim, if the sums claimed were paid
(1) because of an administrative error of the Minister or body concerned; or
(2) as a family allowance or a Canada child benefit; the recalculation is made only for the 6 months preceding the date of the claim.
For the purposes of this section and when required, new statements relating to the months covered by the claim must be filed.
