|U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007|
I see this release as a possible goldmine for those seeking the parentage of the deceased, especially the mother's maiden name. This information is not available on Ancestry's U.S., Social Security Death Index, 1935-2014 database.
Copies of the original records from the Social Security Administration are $27-$29, so this additional information might save a lot of people a lot of money and headache.
Here is Ancestry's blog post about it.
