Here is the format:

=format(cdec(Fields!SSN.Value), "###-##-####")

Error if the value is " ".  How to check before convert this field value to decimal?

You should be able to use the ISNUMERIC function to check if the value is a number -

= IIF(IsNumeric(Fields!SSN.Value), format(cdec(Fields!SSN.Value), "###-##-####"), Fields!SSN.Value)
