Background

The final regulations published March 29, 2007, changed cross-references in 20 CFR 402.35(b)(2) from §§ 404.984(b), 410.610c(b) and 416.1484(b) to §§ 404.985(c), 410.670c(b) and 416.1485(c), respectively. However, two of the new cross-references, §§ 404.985(c) and 416.1485(c) should have been §§ 404.985(b) and 416.1485(b). In addition, we omitted another set of corrections in the same CFR section. The next-to-last sentence incorrectly cites 20 CFR 404.984, 410.610, and 416.1484, which should correctly read as 20 CFR 404.985(c), 410.670c, and 416.1485(c), respectively.

Need for Correction

As published, the final regulations contained errors at 20 CFR 402.35(b)(2). Therefore, we are changing the last two sentences of that section to reflect correct CFR citations and cross-references.
