Introduction

Validating Social Security Numbers (SSNs) in JavaScript is often required in web applications for client-side data validation. JavaScript regex provides a quick and efficient method for this purpose. An example regex pattern is /^\\d{3}-\\d{2}-\\d{4}$/.

What is SSN Regex?

The regex for SSN validation in JavaScript ensures adherence to the standard 3-2-4 digit format.

The SSN Regex Pattern

  • Pattern: /^\\d{3}-\\d{2}-\\d{4}$/

  • This pattern matches SSNs formatted as "XXX-XX-XXXX".

How to Validate SSNs in JavaScript?

To validate SSNs in JavaScript:

function isValidSSN(ssn) {
    const regex = /^\d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4}$/;
    return regex.test(ssn);
}
console.log(isValidSSN("123-45-6789")); // true or false

Uses of SSN Regex Validation

  1. Client-Side Form Validation: Checking the correctness of SSNs entered in web forms.
