The structure of the Social Security Number is defined:
The Area Number, the first three digits, is assigned by the geographical region.
The Group Numbers range from 01 to 99. However, they are not assigned in consecutive order. For administrative reasons, group numbers are issued in the following order:
Effective June 25, 2011, the SSA assigns SSNs randomly and allows for the assignment of area numbers between 734 and 749 and above 772 through the 800s
Note: Changes to the Social Security Numbers were made in June 2011. There is a custom Data Identifier for version 11.0 and above available in Custom Data Identifier for Randomized Social Security Numbers ( SSN ).
