Scarey, isn't it? You know, I heard that when they introduced SS #'s they
swore they weren't going to be used for identification....

Yes, it is scary, and the Social Security Administration STILL has a rule
that SS is not to be used as indentification. What a laugh! The University
where I work requires us to write our SS numbers on every check they cash,
and these numbers are readily available to others (starting with the people
who handle the checks). Ironically, faculty are not permitted to use any
part of SS numbers for grade posting (not even 3 or 4 digits of the number,
as we once did), but every university I have ever been associated with uses
the number as the "student's ID" and prints them for all faculty,
administrators, etc. This is only the tip of the iceberg, of course -- the
part that I am most familiar with, but you will also find that stores
require SS numbers if you want to open an account and various commercial
entities use them for identification. I recently attended a speech given by
the director of the local Soc. Sec. office, and he described using SS as
identification as one of his "pet peeves."

You can get them for a particular person, but not via free services.

Cross reference, having a number, and finding out what person it
belongs to blindly, may not be possible, except for government agencies
etc. Call your local credit bureau and ask them if it can be done.

Does anyone know a site that would tell me who belongs to a social
security number?

You pay the fee, they'll give you the data....

The credit reporting agencies do have access to SS numbers (along with all
sorts of other "private" information), but I certainly hope they don't pass
these along to just any person who calls and asks for it. On the other
hand, it is entirely too easy to gain access to personal information.

Let me put this thread to rest. It turned out that the SS number in
question turned out to be that of a deceased relative. The whole thing
started because of some shares of stock that bore my name but a
different SS number. Problem solved!

No, the way to put this thread to rest is to tell us HOW you got the number.
Well?
