Can I get a social security card the day I come in to apply for a lost one?

Q) Can I get a social security card the day I come in to apply for a lost one?

A) According to Social Security Administration; You cannot receive a Social Security card from a local office because SSA do not print them onsite. SSA print Social Security cards in a secure location.

You can replace your Social Security card for free if it is lost or stolen. However, you may not need to get a replacement card. Knowing your Social Security number is what is important.

You need a Social Security number to get a job, collect Social Security benefits and receive some government services but you do not often need to show your Social Security card.

If you decide you need a card, go to Get Or Replace A Social Security Card and follow the instructions.

  1. I received a call from a fake caller pretending to be from the social security office. Dealing with some wrong doings with my Ss# I’ve done nothing but contact y’all. It’s been happening a lot lately my phone and a few of my friends phones got hacked the other week and a lot of strange things have been happening
