Proposed rule; extension of comment period.


On November 18, 2019, we published the proposed rule Rules Regarding the Frequency and Notice of Continuing Disability Reviews in the Federal Register, and solicited public comments. We provided a 60-day comment period ending January 17, 2020. We are extending the comment period for 15 days.


The comment period for the proposed rule published November 18, 2019, at 84 FR 63588, is extended. Comments should be received on or before January 31, 2020.


You may submit comments by any one of three methods—internet, fax, or mail. Do not submit the same comments multiple times or by more than one method. Regardless of which method you choose, please state that your comments refer to Docket No. SSA-2018-0026 so that we may associate your comments with the correct regulation.

Caution: You should be careful to include in your comments only information that you wish to make publicly available. We strongly urge you not to include in your comments any personal information, such as Social Security numbers or medical information.
