No. You should contace post office. All ZIP codes starting with 330 were
changed some years back to five-digit ZIP codes. But if you go to and punch in Mr. Schwartz's address. you will get a correct
ZIP code.
David got the suspect postal code >from the SSDI. The entries there do not
give complete addresses, only postal codes. If he had the complete
address, he probably wouldn't even have noticed that there was a postal
code, because he wouldn't need it. To tell him how to get >from the address
to the right postal code is to invoke Catch-22.

I found a relative in SSDI, but the zip code is rather odd. If you
lookup Abe SCHWARTZ (135-22-0833), his zip code at death is 33003 --
which is not a legitimate zip code.

Has anyone experienced this before? Will contacting the SSA get me
corrected information?

Thanks in advance!
