We can access several searches to help applicant tracking and determine the relationship of a social security number and the related names used, or when and where the SSN was issued. However, only the Social Security Administration can confirm a social security number is legal and belongs to a specific person. Although the federal government is currently testing other solutions, only the following procedure is available to truly verify a person's social security number.
