5. The advantages from which a crime victim or his dependents may benefit under this Act are those provided in Divisions III, IV and V of the Workmen’s Compensation Act (chapter A-3).
In addition, any mother who is herself providing for the maintenance of a child born as the result of rape may be granted, for the maintenance of the child, a monthly payment of compensation equal to that granted under the Workmen’s Compensation Act to a widow having one child.
However, payment of the benefit may be made to a person other than the mother if, due to the death of the mother or for other cause, such person provides for the maintenance of the child to the satisfaction of the Commission.
The victim or, if he has been killed, his dependents may receive a compensation of up to $1 000 for material damage incurred by the victim in the circumstances described in paragraph b or c of section 3.
