Not a problem.  Simple to prove it is only 9 digits.  Go to this Social Security website - <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://www.ssa.gov/history/ssn/geocard.html">https://www.ssa.gov/history/ssn/geocard.html</a>

I have a Social Security Card dated 1992 - and the number is 10 digits long perhaps they have changed this. Thanks for the links

See answer below. SSN's have never been 10 digits (and mine is a lot older than 1992.).  Medicare ID numbers are the SSN, plus a letter.
