Secretary may disregard some payments

             (1)  For the purposes of this Part, the Secretary may treat the whole or part of a compensation payment as:

                     (a)  not having been made; or

                     (b)  not liable to be made;

if the Secretary thinks it is appropriate to do so in the special circumstances of the case.

             (2)  If:

                     (a)  a person or a person's partner receives or claims a compensation affected payment; and

                     (b)  the person receives compensation; and

                     (c)  the set of circumstances that gave rise to the claim for compensation is not related to the set of circumstances that gave rise to the person's or the person's partner's receipt of, or claim for, the compensation affected payment;

the fact that those 2 sets of circumstances are unrelated does not alone constitute special circumstances for the purposes of subsection (1).
