Nebraska Area Codes Pieces Of Information

Nebraska has two area codes: 402 and 531. 402 is the primary code, while 531 is an overlay code that covers the same geographic area. Area code 402 is the original area code for the state. It covers the eastern half of Nebraska, including the cities of Omaha and Lincoln. Area code 531 was established in 2001 and covers the western half of the state. The following list provides some basic information about Nebraska’s area codes:

  • 402: The first Nebraska area code, 402, was implemented in 1947. In 1954, the western part of the state was given its own area code, 308. In 1991, the eastern half of Nebraska split off as its own separate area code,712. The two halves were reunited in 1998 when 712 was withdrawn and 402 became the exclusive area code for Nebraska once again.

  • 531: In 2001, 531 was introduced as an overlay for 402. This meant that both 402 and 531 could be used in the same geographic area. All new telephone numbers in the 402 area code are assigned 531.

  • 888: This is an overlay code that went into effect in 2000. It covers the entire state of Nebraska and is used with area code 402.

  • 800, 866, 877, and 888: This is toll-free codes that can be used from anywhere in the United States.

If you need to call someone in Nebraska, you will need to use both the area code and the 7-digit local number. Nebraska’s area codes are always 3 digits long and its local numbers are always 7 digits long. You can reach Nebraska by dialing 1 + the area code + the 7-digit local number.

To call a Nebraska number from outside of the state, you would dial 1 + 402 or 1 + 531 + the 7-digit local number. Nebraska’s area codes are assigned by the Nebraska Public Service Commission.
