US Social Security Applications and Claims Index 1936-2007

Ancestry (www.ancestry.com) has launched a major new American based database with some 49 million names, being the U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007. From the site, a description of the collection:

This database picks up where the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) leaves off by providing more details than those included in the SSDI. It includes information filed with the Social Security Administration through the application or claims process, including valuable details such as birth date, birth place, and parents’ names. While you will not find everybody who is listed in the SSDI in this database, data has been extracted for more than 49 million people.
Information you may find includes:

applicant's full name
date and place of birth
father's name
mother's maiden name
race/ethnic description (optional)

You may also find details on changes made to the applicant's record, including name changes and life or death claims. You may also find some unusual abbreviations or truncated entries for county and other names and punctuation errors in the data. These are in the original; we have not altered the text.

To access the collection on a Worldwide sub, visit http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=60901.
