If you lost your card, you may not need a replacement. In most cases, simply knowing your Social Security number is enough. But if you do need a replacement, we make it easy. Once you complete your application (online or in-person), you will receive your Social Security card in the mail.
Answer a few questions to find the best way to get what you need.
- Request a copy of a lost, stolen, or damaged card
- Update or correct your personal information (e.g. name, citizenship, sex identification, date of birth)
- Request a Social Security number for the first time
