DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS

38 CFR Part 4


Technical Correction to Combined Ratings Table

AGENCY: Department of Veterans Affairs.

ACTION: Final rule; correcting amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published, in the 
Federal Register of March 18, 1976, a final rule amending its Schedule 
For Rating Disabilities regulations. The amendment, which was 
accurately reflected in the Federal Register document, was subsequently 
misprinted when included in Part 4 of title 38, Code of Federal 
Regulations. Therefore, VA is correcting this misprint which contained 
two typographical errors found in Table I of the Combined Ratings 
Table.

DATES: Effective April 24, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gabrielle Mancuso, Consultant, 
Regulations Staff (211D), Compensation Service, Department of Veterans 
Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20420, (202) 461-9700. 
(This is not a toll-free telephone number.)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 18, 1976, VA published in the 
Federal Register (41 FR 11293), an amendment to Part 4 of title 38, 
Code of Federal Regulations, that revised several disabilities, added 
new ratings codes and criteria, and redesignated the Combined Ratings 
Table at 38 CFR 4.25 as ``Table I.'' Although there were no changes 
made to the combined ratings values found in Table I, the table was 
misprinted when published in the Code of Federal Regulations. 
Specifically, two typographical errors were made on row 89 columns 70 
and 80. This misprint has continued in both paper and online 
publications to date.
    This document now corrects those typographical errors by removing 
``87'' and adding in its place ``97'' (row 89 column 70) and removing 
``38'' and adding in its place ``98'' (row 89 column 80). These errors 
do not affect any benefits which were previously paid as VA's 
electronic systems have correctly computed the combined degree of 
disability.

List of Subjects in 38 CFR Part 4
