The SSA is extending the expiration dates of the following body systems in the Listing of Impairments (listings) in its regulations: Musculoskeletal System, Cardiovascular System, Digestive System, Skin Disorders, and Immune System Disorders. The agency is making no other revisions to these body systems in the final rule. This extension ensures that the SSA will continue to have the criteria it needs to evaluate impairments in the affected body systems at step three of the sequential evaluation processes for initial claims and continuing disability reviews. The rule became effective on November 26, 2019, and the extended expiration date for all five body systems is February 4, 2022.
