Detecting SSNs in texts can be challenging: they are essentially just 9-digit numbers, thus prone to false-positives. The basic format of SSNs is “AAA-GG-SSSS” (sometimes without dashes), comprising of an Area, Group and Serial Number. These parts formerly had meaning, but since 2011, and the dawn of the “randomization act”, they are essentially random.
To prevent a high number of false-positive SSNs, Intelligence X uses various smart algorithms to determine whether a 9-digit number is actually a SSN, or indicates something else.
Additional information on SSNs, including historical and current information, is available on this blog post – “Validating Social Security Numbers through Regular Expressions” – and on the “Social Security Number Randomization” page of the Social Security Administration.
