Social Security Announces Top 10 Baby Names

Social Security District Manager Spencer/Storm Lake
Each May, Social Security releases the top 10 baby names of the previous year. We are the leading source for America's popular names because almost every newborn gets a Social Security number at birth.
In a way, your name is your first "personal" information - a piece of identification that you have for the rest of your life. Having a Social Security number provides the foundation for vital benefits to that child if they need them in the future and when they retire. Saving early is key to having enough money to live on in retirement.
