What your SS numbers mean

I saw this on oprah today. It says the first three numbers of you social security number indicate where you were born, the second two numbers indicate when you were born, and the last four numbers are random. The first three numbers go from the east coast to the west coast so that if you were born in NY your first three numbers would be 095, and if born in California your numbers would be in the 500's. Does your SS number make sense? Mine doesnt according to where I was born and when I was born.

mine neither, amber. I was born in northern California and my number doesn't start in the 500s. Oprah's a fraud.

And nice try on the subtle method of teasing out all of our SSNs (j/k).

mudbug, I wasnt asking for your numbers. Actually it wasnt Oprah that said this, it was a guest on her show named A.J. Jacobs.

The numbers have to do with when your ss# was acquired. For example, my mom got SS#s for my sis and I on the same day, so we're one number apart.
My h was born in So Cal as well and has a number that would link him to back east.

Thats weird that your husband was born in So Cal and has a number that links him to the east coast, but no more weird than mine, being born on the east coast being linked to the west coast How would these numbers for location and birthdate matter if they are not true? It doesnt make much sense

Thanks Seven S. I seems it doesnt work for a few that replied on here besides myself. I'll see if others come along saying the same, and if so, I think it's time to email the Oprah show about this.

(I believe that using numbers depending upon the location was originally what was done)
