Social Security Administration July 3, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Protecting the Integrity of Social Security Numbers (SSNs)
Document Number: E7-12831
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-03
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
SSA is proposing to change the way that we assign SSNs. We intend to eliminate the geographical significance of the first three digits of the SSN (the ``area number'') by no longer allocating entire area numbers for assignment to individuals in specific States. Instead, the SSN will be randomly assigned from the remaining pool of available SSNs, and the first three digits of the SSN will no longer have any geographical significance. We believe that by changing the way we assign the SSN we will ensure that there will be a reliable supply of SSNs for years to come. Additionally, we believe that this will also help reduce opportunities for identity theft and SSN fraud and misuse. We specifically invite comments to help us determine whether this change would have any unanticipated effects on the public.
