SSN:- Social Security Number
SSN, which stands for Social Security Number, is a nine-digit number issued in the United States of America to all of its citizens, and its permanent and temporary residents in accordance to the regulations given in the constitution. This number is issued by the Social Administration Division, which is an independent agency of the government. The numbers were first issued in November 1935, as part of the Social Security Administration’s New Deal Social Security program. This initiative was carried out in order to track the individuals’ accounts registered within the Social Security program. Since then, it has come a long way, and at present, it is prominently used to identify individuals within the United States. Though it was by o means 100% accurate, the errors were far and in between, when duplicates came around once in a while. Another purpose of the numbers was to enable the U.S Armed Forces, to use it as an identification number for Army and Air Force personnel.
