How do I get Turbo Tax to remove the Canada Employment amount?

The Canada Employment Amount is automatically calculated based on your eligibility, and there is no way to opt out of the credit. The amount should be removed if you add information that indicates you are self-employed.

 

If you have added self-employment income and are still seeing the credit, please contact our phone support as they will be better able to assist you (*Not available for TurboTax Free users*). https://turbotax.community.intuit.ca/replies/3152013

How do I get Turbo Tax to remove the Canada Employment amount?

My mother-in-law is a (very) senior citizen.  She has only pension (CPP + OAS + work pension (more than one company)) and some investment income.  All income is reported on T-Slips which were Auto-Fill into TurboTax from CRA.    TurboTax on the "Deductions and credits claimed" screen is reporting that it has claimed the "Canada employment amount" for her!     As per CRA she clearly has NO employment income and should *not* be claiming this.   How do I remove this claim?     OR???  am I wrong ????

 

UPDATE EDIT :   Subsequent research makes me believe that possibly one of her T4A slips reporting "Premiums paid to a group term life insurance plan" might be possibly causing this...   I thought best to add this information to this post in case it was helpful.      Thank you in advance for any replies !
