Rules for validating social security numbers
Data validation helps you collect more accurate information by allowing you to set rules on the text fields your signer will fill out.
For example, if you need to collect a Social Security number, your signer will have to enter nine digits.
If your signer enters more than or less than nine digits, they will receive a message that says “Please enter your 9 digit social security number”.
Please note: data validation only validates the format of text entered, and does not verify the actual data.
If they do not, they will receive a notification letting them know they need to enter all ten digits.On June 25, 2011, SSN issuance changed from an ordered issuance system to a random issuance system.This change was needed to protect Americans against identity theft.
