	if (this == compareObj) // Are they exactly the same instance?
           return true;
 
	if (compareObj == null) // Is the object being compared null?
	    return false;
 
	if (!(compareObj instanceof Person)) // Is the object being compared also a Person?
	    return false;
 
	Person comparePerson = (Person)compareObj; // Convert the object to a Person
 
	return this.SocialSecurityNumber.equals(comparePerson.SocialSecurityNumber); // Are they equal?
    }
 
    @Override
    public int hashCode()
    {
	int primeNumber = 31;
	return primeNumber + this.SocialSecurityNumber.hashCode();
    }
}

	return this.SocialSecurityNumber.equals(comparePerson.SocialSecurityNumber); // Are they equal?
    }
 
    @Override

How could that solve his problem? Not to mention that you will get a NullPointerException with that code.

Dmith post the error that you get as well as relevant code.
