Massachusetts, during the period from October 29, 1958, through 
December 31, 1979, for a number of work days aggregating at least 
250 work days, occurring either solely under this employment, or in 
combination with work days within the parameters established for one 
or more other classes of employees included in the Special Exposure 
Cohort.

This designation became effective on January 6, 2013, as provided for 
under 42 U.S.C. 7384l(14)(C). Hence, beginning on January 6, 2013, 
members of this class of employees, defined as reported in this notice, 
became members of the SEC.
