Why does my SSN Trace show a county I never lived in?

The SSN Trace & Associated Counties search will show counties that are associated with your SSN, not necessarily ones that you’ve lived in. For example, it can include counties where you’ve applied for loans or received mail. This information comes from the three major credit bureaus. If you believe a county shouldn't be on your SSN Trace, we suggest you run your free credit report and contact the credit bureaus to correct your file.
