That number was issued between1977 and 1979, according to the PI who started this whole tempest in a teapot:
From the affidavit of Susan Daniels, licensed private investigator, Document No. 78-5, filed in Barnett, et al v. Obama, US District Court for the Central District of California, Santa Ana (Southern) Divison on 10/01/2009.
"I located a social security number for Barack Hussein Obama and found that it was issued between 1977-1979 in the State of Connecticut."
From the SSA link at comment 43:
Since 1972, when SSA began assigning SSNs and issuing cards centrally from Baltimore, the area number assigned has been based on the ZIP code in the mailing address provided on the application for the original Social Security card. The applicant's mailing address does not have to be the same as their place of residence. Thus, the Area Number does not necessarily represent the State of residence of the applicant, either prior to 1972 or since.
I would also challenge any private detective to testify under oath that Obama never visited Connecticut betwen 1977 and 1979. How could they possibly prove it?
The fact that he had a verified SSN issued in CT is odd, nothing more.
Yes , pretty odd. Someone travels from Hawaii to Conn and establishes a mailing address in Conn. Then when he applies for his SS number, he has it sent to that address instead of his home address in Hawaii. However, the number wasn't verified being issued to him. It was issued to someone else. It has been verified that he has used that number.
“The fact that he had a verified SSN issued in CT is odd, nothing more.”
How about that fact that his SS# was issued to someone else?
Does that seem more than odd?
Post the damn link when you quote something like that. You know better. You sound worried. You should be.
Since 1973, social security numbers have been issued by our central office. The first three (3) digits of a person’s social security number are determined by the ZIP Code of the mailing address shown on the application for a social security number. Prior to 1973, social security numbers were assigned by our field offices. The number merely established that his/her card was issued by one of our offices in that State. See also High Group List of SSN’s.

NOTE: The same area, when shown more than once, means that certain numbers have been transferred from one State to another, or that an area has been divided for use among certain geographic locations.
The following is general information about Social Security numbers and a list which indicates the state and its corresponding area number used by Social Security when assigning Social Security numbers.
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. It has 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 the serial number. It represents a straight numerical sequence of digits from 0001-9999 within the group.
