For example, a number 785723 representing the first six digits is assigned to a woman born on 23rd of July 1978. SSS is a serial number distinguishing persons born on the same date and C is a check digit. For people born before January 1st 1954 the number is without this check digit – YYXXDD/SSS (i.e. the nine-digit case). If the national identification number has ten digits, then the tenth (check) digit is the first nine digits modulo 11, unless this modulo is 10. In that case the tenth digit is 0. Therefore, the ten-digit number is usually divisible by 11. It should be noted that the special character “/” is just a separator and should be omitted in transaction reports.||It is assigned to a person shortly after birth by the birth registry and does not change throughout the life of a person.
