Income Support, Training and Health Benefits Regulation

Part 5 Miscellaneous

Section 100 Emergency payments — ineligible household units

  1. The Director may provide core income support, supplementary income support or health benefits that would otherwise not be payable to a household unit under this Regulation because the financial resources available to a household unit exceed its budgetary requirements if

    1. the Director considers that not providing the benefit would result in extreme hardship to the household unit,

    2. the household unit does not have sufficient liquid assets, and

    3. the household unit does not have any assets that are not exempt assets.

  2. The amount that may be provided is the difference between

    1. the value of income support and benefits or health benefits that would otherwise be available under the Act, or both, as determined by the Director, and

    2. the liquid assets of the household unit.
