Being the Constant Skeptic that I am, I checked four SS numbers that I know against the SS state listing.
My father, who got his SS number in about 1940, lived in Minnesota. His SS number is a Minnesota number.
I got my SS number in the 1960s when living in Wisconsin. My SS number is a Wisconsin number.
My mother got her SS number in about 1940. She may have lived in Minnesota, Wisconsin, or Michigan when she got it. She definitely did not live in Iowa or even travel to Iowa at that time. Her SS number is an Iowa number.
My husband got his SS number in the 1960s when he was in high school. He had only lived and worked in Iowa. His number is a Minnesota number.
So... of four numbers, two are from correct states, two are from incorrect states.
Personally, I find it very believable that the SS admin screwed up Obama’s SS number. They screwed up half of my family’s!
I challenge you to check your SS numbers and those of your family against the listing of SS numbers by state. I’d be real curious as to the reliability of the state designations. It’s obviously not 100%!

All the states you mention border one another in the upper Midwest. It could be a regional anomaly. There is absolutely no correlation between CT and Hawaii ... they couldn't be further apart ... some five thousand plus miles.
