The nine-digit Social Security number is divided into three parts:
The first three digits are the area number. If your Social Security number was assigned before 1972 when Social Security cards were issued by local offices, the area number reflects the State where you applied for your number. If your number was assigned in 1972 or later when we began issuing Social Security cards centrally, the area number reflects the State as determined by the ZIP code in the mailing address on your application for the number.
The middle two digits are the group number. They have no special geographic or data
significance but merely serve to break the number into conveniently sized blocks for orderly issuance.
The last four digits are serial numbers. They represent a straight numerical sequence of digits from 0001-9999 within the group

The first three digits of you SS# are based on the state you're born in (specifically the area code of the address displayed on the application).
Interesting theory. For mine, it actually somewhat worked out. I got mine in Oregon, and the first three are 541. That was in 1984, when Oregon only had one area code, which was 503. Perhaps by coincidence, but at least a decade later, Oregon did get a 2nd area code, which was 541!
