How to Conduct an SSN Search Online

First things first - no, there's no way that you'll be able to lookup someone's SSN online. In fact, even SSN-driven searches (where you need a valid SSN to lookup records) are quite rare.

The reasons for this are quite obvious - with issues like privacy and the ever-rising levels of identity theft in America, SSN information is essentially impossible to find by its own design. Social security numbers are used by many levels of government in order to centralize record-keeping, much of which is confidential information, such as health records, financial information and so on.

However - aside from the very few SSN-driven searches (such as a few court records databases and other related searches where you need the correct SSN prior to conducting the search), the only online resources that exist in relation to SSN numbers are validation databases and the SSN death index, listed below.

You can use these searches to determine if a person is lying about their identity. If the SSN shows up in the death index, then it belongs to someone who is now deceased. And if the algorithmic "SSN Validator" database shows the number as invalid or inactive, then the given number is either potentially incorrect or fraudulent.

Regardless, you should be aware that the resources listed below are managed by private third-parties, not government agencies. Accuracy and reliability is in no way guaranteed. Treat all search results as though they're fiction, rather than fact.

SSN Searches:

SSN Validator - This database queries non-classified SSA information to determine the legitimacy of a given social security number.

Nationwide Social Security Death Index - Massive database of death records, which include SSN details.
