SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 8, 2002 (at 67 FR 16950), the PBGC published a final rule on PBGC Benefit Payments. That final rule inadvertently (1) drops existing regulatory text from § 4044.13(b) of the PBGC's regulation on Allocation of Assets in Single-Employer Plans; and (2) omits two conforming amendments in the text that was dropped from that regulation. The conforming amendments that were omitted were included in the PBGC's proposed rule on PBGC Benefit Payments published December 26, 2000 (at 65 FR 81456). This document corrects that error.
