Twins cannot have sequential Social Security numbers

Email News Alerts

Q: I just had twins. Can I get sequential Social Security numbers to make them easier to remember?

A: This was possible several decades ago, but no longer. Even then, it was not recommended and Social Security had internal methods to prevent sequential Social Security numbers when multiple births were involved.
