Full text
177.102. Despite section 177.101, the following are considered to be property:
(1)  lump sums paid to an adult to compensate a loss or impairment of physical or mental integrity and death benefits paid to an adult, received in one or more payments, provided they are immediately deposited in a separate account in a financial institution;
(2)  liquid assets received by an adult from a succession in excess of the debts and charges for which the adult is liable;
(3)  proceeds from a life insurance policy received by an adult following the death of a person, provided they are paid in a lump sum.
In order for the first paragraph to apply, the following must have been received during a month in which the adult or the family is a recipient under a last resort financial assistance program otherwise than pursuant to section 49 of the Act, the Aim for Employment Program or the Basic Income Program or during a month in which the adult or family is eligible to receive dental or pharmaceutical services pursuant to section 48:
(1)  a lump sum or, if applicable, the first payment thereof, in the case of death benefits referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph; and
(2)  liquid assets and proceeds from a life insurance policy referred to in subparagraphs 2 and 3 of the first paragraph.
This paragraph applies even if the benefit granted for the 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 is sent by the Minister, pursuant to section 97 of the Act.
