Is Social Security going to run out of numbers? Not for many decades. This is the Social Security Administration’s answer to the question:

Q: How many Social Security numbers have been issued since the program started?
A: Since 1935, we have assigned more than 465 million Social Security numbers and each year we assign about 5.5 million new numbers. With approximately 1 billion combinations of the 9-digit Social Security number, the current system will provide us with enough new numbers for several generations into the future.
