Social Security Death Index record example

Social Security Death Index

Records: 94,319,335

These records include the names of men and women, now deceased, who received Social Security Numbers from the Social Security Administration. For various reasons, not everyone with an SS# will appear in this file. The data includes names, last residence (not necessarily place of death), death and birth dates. It also includes the location where their Social Security card was issued and a partial Social Security number. Information appears on a Memorial Page where stories, photos, and tributes may be added.
