Actually, the numbers don't mean anything anymore.

As of June 25, 2011 all SSN numbers are now issued at random. Also, all previously unassigned area numbers will now be used, except 000, 666 and 900-999

My SSN starts with 79, which was previously an unassigned number.

On June 25, 2011, the SSA changed the SSN assignment process to "SSN randomization".[26] SSN randomization will affect the SSN assignment process in the following ways:

  • It will eliminate the geographical significance of the first three digits of the SSN, currently referred to as the Area Number, by no longer allocating the Area Numbers for assignment to individuals in specific states.
  • It will eliminate the significance of the highest Group Number and, as a result, the High Group List will be frozen in time and can be used for validation of SSNs issued prior to the randomization implementation date.
  • Previously unassigned Area Numbers will be introduced for assignment excluding Area Numbers 000, 666 and 900-999.

Prior to June 25, 2011, a valid SSN could not have an area number between 734 and 749, or above 772, the highest area number which the Social Security Administration has allocated. Effective June 25, 2011, the SSA assigns SSNs randomly and allows for the assignment of area numbers between 734 and 749 and above 772 through the 800s.[28] This should not be confused with Tax Identification Numbers which include additional area numbers.[29]

There are also special numbers which will never be allocated:

  • Numbers with all zeros in any digit group (000-##-####, ###-00-####, ###-##-0000).[30]
  • Numbers with 666 or 900-999 in the first digit group.[30]
  • Numbers from 987-65-4320 to 987-65-4329 are reserved for use in advertisements.
