Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law to the contrary, a recipient of benefits under the "Hearing Aid Assistance for the Aged and Disabled" program, established pursuant to P.L.1987, c.298 (C.30:4D-36 et seq.), shall notify the Department of Health and Senior Services if the recipient unintentionally errs in estimating annual income to determine eligibility for the program due to an unanticipated payment which would render the recipient ineligible for the program.
