VA published an amendment to a final rule in the Federal Register on September 27, 2002 (See 67 FR 60868), that, among other things, added 10 U.S.C. 1174(h)(2) and 10 U.S.C. 1212(c) as authority citations for 38 CFR 3.700(a)(2)(iii). The citation to 10 U.S.C. 1212(c) is incorrect, because that statute governs the recoupment of disability severance pay. A subsequent amendment to the final rule on June 5, 2009 (See 74 FR 26957) retained this incorrect authority citation. This document corrects that error. Because the citation to 10 U.S.C. 1174(h)(2) is correct, it remains unchanged.Start List of Subjects
