Marginal note:Presumption of death
37 (1) Where a contributor or a person to whom any benefit has become payable under this Act or the former Act has, either before or after the coming into force of this subsection, disappeared under circumstances that, in the opinion of the Minister, raise beyond a reasonable doubt a presumption that the person is dead, the Minister may determine the date for the purposes of this Act and the former Act on which that person’s death is presumed to have occurred, and thereupon that person is deemed for all purposes of this Act and the former Act to have died on that date.
