Do twins get social security numbers that are consecutive?
Hello, thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am Michael, a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.

Decades ago this was possible but not necessary today because of technology. The EAB program today sends numbers at random as reported here in detail:

how where they assigned decades ago- did siblings get consecutive numbers?


 

Since the SSA keeps these types of things confidential, a study was done by an administrator that from his research determined that around 14 percent of the time were numbers were consecutive.
