    Sorry, i was replying to Crosshair's comment about counterfeit cards.

    I made no assertions about the length of a c card number, only that the qr code appeared to be useless. If you want to verify an ssi c card, you can either dig out the phone, scan the qr code, put in the divers birthdate into the ssi website OR you can log into ssi's website, type in their name and birthdate. The QR code has no advantage that has been brought up or is apparent.

    If you want a shorter certification number, use the last 6-8 digits of the card with the best photo. :)

    The QR code is most helpful for Instructors and other Pro level members. Their teaching status can be quickly checked by scanning the code. The older stickers showed "current" for the year, but if that person's status was revoked, a student wouldn't have anyway to check without calling SSI.
