Social Security Number Search

Area Number Validator

Enter the first three digits ( area number ) of a Social Security Number to find the U.S. state or territory that the SSN was issued in. Search results will appear in a popup window, so Javascript must be enabled in your web browser.


This Social Security Area Number Validator is for informational purposes only. Results only show you the likely state or territory that a valid Social Security Number was issued in.

This SSN search should not be used to verify the authenticity of a Social Security Number. In addition, this search does not show whether or not a given SSN belongs to a specific individual. This SSN search only shows the state or territory that an area number is assigned to.

We cannot guarantee that search results are free of errors or omissions.

Please report any errors or omissions that you find to us on our contact page.
