 No amount is payable under section 45, or deductible under subsection 46(1), as a repayment of an overpayment of benefits if more than 36 months have elapsed since the lay-off or separation from the employment in relation to which the earnings are paid or payable and, in the opinion of the Commission, the administrative costs of determining the repayment would likely equal or exceed the amount of the repayment.
