14 December 2011's SSDI Won't Give Social Security Numbers of People Not Dead Ten Years

It's old news now, but this is posted on the search page of the Social Security Death Index at

"Why can’t I see the Social Security Number? If the Social Security Number is not visible on the record index it is because does not provide this number in the Social Security Death Index for any person that has passed away within the past 10 years."

Others have commented, so I won't repeat that here, but I don't think really does one whit to stop identity theft.
