How are clerical errors in ALJ decisions corrected?

(1) A clerical error is a mistake that does not change the intent of the decision.
(2) The ALJ corrects clerical errors in hearing decisions by issuing a second decision referred to as a corrected decision or corrected order. Corrections may be made to initial orders and final orders.
(3) Some examples of clerical error are:
(a) Missing or incorrect words or numbers;
(b) Dates inconsistent with the decision or evidence in the record such as using May 3, 1989, instead of May 3, 1998; or
(c) Math errors when adding the total of an overpayment or a child support debt.
