Start Preamble


Social Security Administration.


Correcting amendments.


The Social Security Administration published a document in the Federal Register on May 10, 2004 (69 FR 25950), revising our rules dealing with claims for Special Veterans Benefits under title VIII of the Social Security Act. That document incorrectly designated the final four paragraphs in § 408.1003. This document corrects the final regulations by redesignating those paragraphs.


Effective on June 9, 2004.

The final rules that are the subject of this correction set forth six new subparts in part 408 (Special Benefits for Certain World War II Veterans). The six new subparts dealt with the following topics: the events you must report to us after you apply for SVB, the circumstances that will affect your SVB entitlement, how we handle overpayments and underpayments under the SVB program, how the administrative review process works, your right to appoint someone to represent you in your dealings with us, and administration agreements we may enter into with a State under which we will pay supplemental recognition payments to you on the State's behalf. On page 25963 of the document we published in the Federal Register of May 10, 2004, we incorrectly designated the final four paragraphs in § 408.1003 as paragraphs (e) through (h).
