 Need clarification about death residence

There is confusion about the last residence in the SSDI, we need a paragraph that clarifies that this in not the place of death, it is the last place of residence that the SSA has on file.  In this same paragraph we need to include that when only 2 geographical divisions are stated that they represets County/State as opposed to City/State (ie Jefferson,Texas refers to the county of Jefferson not the City of Jefferson).  Using the Zip code of last residence helps determine the town.

Missing Information

There isn't anything showing up on the page.

This is the coding that moved the rest of the article down to where the page looked empty:

I just have a question, why do the electronic records not show what exact date they crossed the border? It only shows the year range for each individual. Are they not in the original record? Thanks

I wonder if you posted this message in the wrong collection. Could you have meant to ask this about one of the border crossing collections?

It might be useful to point out that the place given in this collection is the death residence, not necessarily the place where the death occured. To split hairs even further, the residence listed would be the Social Security Administration's most recent address for that individual. If the person had moved to a new residence very recently before his death, this information could be inaccurate. Admittedly, the Social Security Administration does generally know fairly quickly after someone moves.
