Ancestry and other sources do publish lists of deceased from Social Security records including SS Number, where born and where the card was issued. And you can get a copy of the original application.

But it is now years before the information is updated. The most recent one on Ancestry today is 2014.

I don't see any reason to keep the info confidential once people are deceased. Often obituaries contain much more info including parents, children's names, etc.

Its all part of family tree research.

I know people are concerned about privacy, but those concerns end on the date of your death. Its info on living people that is sometimes protected.
