Such recomputation shall be made only in the manner provided in title II of the Social Security Act as in effect at the time of such individual's death, and as though application therefor was filed in the month in which he died. No recomputation made under this subsection shall be regarded as a recomputation under section 215(f) of the Social Security Act. Any such recomputation shall be effective for and after the twelfth month before the month in which the application is filed, but in no case for any month before the first month with respect to which such widow or child is entitled by reason of section 217(f) of the Social Security Act to have such active military or naval service included in the computation of such monthly benefits. The terms used in this subsection shall have the same meaning as when used in title II of the Social Security Act. (d) Except for the last sentence of section 217(e)(1) of the Social Security Act as amended by subsection (a) of this section, the amendments made by such subsection (a) shall be effective as though they had been enacted on March 31, 1956. Such last sentence of section 217(e)(1) of the Social Security Act shall become effective January 1, 1957. T A Y M E N T OF BENEFITS I N CERTAIN CASES OF IN-SERVICE OR SERVICECONNECTED DEATHS
