RIN 0960-AH66

Unsuccessful Work Attempts and Expedited Reinstatement 
Eligibility; Correction

AGENCY: Social Security Administration.

ACTION: Final rules; correction.


SUMMARY: We published a document in the Federal Register revising our 
rules on October 17, 2016. That document inadvertently omitted a 
corresponding technical change to Sec.  404.1592f(a) when Sec.  
404.1592c(a) was amended with the final rule publication. By making 
this technical correction we will also need to redesignate the 
amendatory instructions to incorporate the missing section changes to 
Sec.  404.1592f(a). This document corrects the final regulation by 
making these technical corrections.

DATES: The corrections are effective April 17, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We published a final rule in the Federal 
Register of October 17, 2016 (81 FR 71367) titled, Unsuccessful Work 
Attempts and Expedited Reinstatement Eligibility. The final rule, among 
other things, amended 20 CFR parts 404 and 416. We inadvertently 
omitted a corresponding technical change to Sec.  404.1592f(a) when 
Sec.  404.1592c(a) was amended with the final rule publication. This 
document amends and corrects the final regulation.

    In FR Doc. 2016-24873 appearing on page 71369 in the Federal 
Register of Monday, October 17, the following corrections are made:


    1. On page 71369, in the third column, redesignate amendatory 
instructions 6 through 9 as 7 through 10 and add new amendatory 
instruction 6 to read as follows:

6. Amend Sec.  404.1592f by revising paragraph (a) to read as follows:

Sec.  404.1592f  How do we determine reinstated benefits?

    (a) If you meet the requirements for reinstatement under Sec.  
404.1592c(a), we will then consider in which month to reinstate your 
entitlement. We will reinstate your entitlement with the earliest 
month, in the 12-month period that ends with the month before you filed 
your request for reinstatement, that you would have met all of the 
requirements under Sec.  404.1592c(a) if you had filed your request for 
reinstatement in that month. Otherwise, you will be entitled to 
reinstated benefits beginning with the month in which you filed your 
request for such benefits if you did not perform substantial gainful 
activity in that month. If you performed substantial gainful activity 
in the month of filing, but are no longer able to perform substantial 
gainful activity, we will reinstate your benefits with the month after 
the month you filed your request for reinstatement. We cannot reinstate 
your entitlement for any month prior to January 2001.
