SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 26, 2014 we published an NPRM at 
79 FR 10730 that proposed to revise our medical criteria for evaluating 
HIV infection and functional limitations in immune system disorders. We 
provided the public with a 60-day comment period. The NPRM incorrectly 
included criteria in listing of impairment 113.00 that we did not 
intend to include. We are correcting that error and extending the 
comment period in order that the public may have a full sixty days to 
comment following this correction.

Correction

    In proposed rule FR Doc. 2014-04124, beginning on page 10730 in the 
issue of Wednesday, February 26, 2014, in the proposed regulatory 
language section, make the following corrections:

Appendix 1 to Subpart P of Part 404--[Corrected]

0
1. On page 10739 in the 2nd column, in Listing 113.00 of Part B of 
Appendix 1 to Subpart P of Part 404, remove the sentence of paragraph 
A. that reads, ``If you have HIV infection, we use the criteria in 
114.08E to evaluate carcinoma of the cervix, Kaposi sarcoma, lymphoma, 
and squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal and anal margin.''.

Extension of Comment Period

    This notice requested that the public submit comments by April 28, 
2014.
    We are hereby extending the deadline for submitting comments to May 
27, 2014.

    Dated: March 19, 2014.

Acting Commissioner of Social Security.
