Can you find a person's place of current employment with a social security number?

This is illegal unless it is to do with creditors, etc.! * No. Social Security numbers/records, are protected by US federal law. Creditors and other persons have access to SS numbers because the individual supplies them at the time of application. The creditor does not have access to the individuals employment history through the SSA nor do private individuals. Certain exceptions are made for governmental agencies (IRS, USCIS, etc.) and for standing orders of child support being enforced by a state or federal agency.
