Schedules

Interpretation
1(1)  For the purposes of the Act, 

     (a)  "dependent child" means an individual under the age of 18 years
who resides with and is financially dependent on a person who receives a
handicap benefit; 

     (b)  "principal residence" means one home or the home quarter
section of a farm in or on which the applicant or recipient resides and
includes

               (i)  the home furnishings, and

               (ii) buildings on the home quarter section; 

     (c)  "severe handicap" means an impairment of mental or physical
functioning or both that, in the opinion of the Director after considering
any relevant medical or psychological reports, causes substantial
limitation in the person's ability to earn a livelihood and is likely to
continue to affect that person permanently because no remedial therapy is
available that would materially improve the person's ability to earn a
livelihood or improve the person's mental or physical functioning;

     (d)  "spouse" means a person of the opposite sex 

               (i)  who resides with and is married to an applicant or 
recipient of a handicap benefit, 

               (ii) with whom the applicant or recipient is living and
has declared a common-law relationship for purposes other than for
receiving a handicap benefit,

               (iii)     with whom, in the Director's opinion, the applicant
or recipient is living in a conjugal relationship, 

               (iv) with whom the applicant or recipient is living and
has had or has adopted a dependent child, or 

               (v)  who does not reside with the applicant for or
recipient of a handicap benefit but otherwise has a relationship with the
applicant or recipient described in subclause (i), (ii), (iii) or (iv) and
has a financial interdependency, other than for the support of children,
with the applicant or recipient.

(2)  For the purposes of this Regulation,

     (a)  "cash-equivalent asset" means a financial instrument that is
readily convertible to cash;

     (b)  "exempt asset" means an asset described in section 5.3(a), (b)
or (c) of the Act or in section 6 of this Regulation plus the $100 000
referred to in sections 4(2)(d) and 5.2(2) of the Act;

     (c)  "market value" means the value of an asset if it were sold or
cashed in at the current value with fair exposure to the market;

     (d)  "non-exempt asset" means an asset other than an exempt asset.


Handicap benefit
2   The categories and amounts of handicap benefits or modified amounts of
handicap benefits that may be provided under the Act are set out in
Schedule 2.


Exempt income
3(1)  The income of any person and of the person's spouse that is exempt
for the purpose of determining the amount of a handicap benefit payable to
that person is specified in Schedule 1.

(2)  When making a determination under Schedule 1, all references to income
in Schedule 1 are to gross income, unless Schedule 1 specifically refers to
net income.


Determining income
4   The following applies for the purpose of determining the amount of a
handicap benefit, if any, that is payable to a person under Schedule 2: 

     (a)  income is considered to be received regardless of whether the
income is actually withdrawn or received; 

     (b)  if income is received as a lump sum which, but for a delay of
payment, would have been received as periodic payments, the Director

               (i)  must divide the lump sum by the number of months to
which the lump sum relates, and

               (ii) must recalculate the recipient's monthly handicap
benefit by attributing the divided lump sum to the months to which the lump
sum relates

          and any overpayment resulting from the recalculation is subject
to section 9 of the Act;

     (c)  the income of a dependent child of the person is to be ignored
unless the income is deemed to be entitled to be received under section
5.4(2) of the Act; 

     (d)  deductions from income allowed under the Income Tax Act
(Canada) for the purposes of determining net income or taxable income shall
not be used in the calculation of income for the purposes of this
Regulation; 

     (e)  income that is not exempt under Schedule 1 must be deducted
dollar for dollar from the handicap benefit otherwise payable;
