Default Tracing a social Security number

I have an old Diamond Arms single barrel 12 ga. shotgun my uncle gave me many years ago with either his or possibly my granddads SSAN engraved on it.Is there any easy way to check online to see if it is my uncles or granddads SSAN or is a letter to the Social Security Administration the only way? The only info I found was that the first three numbers are from Texas where we are from.It's no big deal but I am just curious.Thanks for any help if any of you have ever tried this.

There is a way to do it online. My boss did it for me when I wanted to request my Maternal Grandfatherís Army records and he found the SSN in less than 5 minutes but I donít know where.

You can use ancestry.com to look at SSA Death Records - it will include their social.

Search for their name and their birth / death date - If you want help - PM me

Follow up. I just asked my boss and was told he had searched the Social Security Death Index for me. It was back in 2017 and he thinks it has changed but back then if you knew first name, last name, county of residence and year of death, the system would give you a bunch of other info including the deceased’s SSN. It was supposed to help combat fraudulent uses Of deceased people’s SSN’s by making them publicly searchable or something like that. Anyway, I can’t figure it out but maybe this info will help you.

If you know someone with an Ancestry.com membership, you could try the Social Security Death Index. You input name and the answer will include the SSAN.
