How do I get a new SS# IF I LOST MINE. WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED?

Q) How do I get a new SS# IF I LOST MINE. WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED. ALSO, WHAT HAPPENS IF MY LAST NAME CHANGED

A) First, realize you may not need a replacement card. You will rarely need to show it. Knowing your Social Security number is what is important. To get a replacement Social Security card:

Step 1: Gather documents proving your:

Identity; and
U.S. citizenship or current work-authorized* immigration status.
*A noncitizen not permitted to work must show us a letter from a federal, state or local government agency that explains you need a number and meet all the requirements for a benefit.

Step 2: Complete an Application for a Social Security Card.

Step 3: Take or mail your completed application and documents to your local Social Security office.

All documents must be either originals or copies certified by the issuing agency. SSA cannot accept photocopies or notarized copies of documents. Any documents you mail to SSA will be returned to you along with a receipt.

  1. According to the Social Security Administration – You can continue working and start receiving your retirement benefits. … You can get Social Security retirement benefits and work at the same time before your full retirement age. However your benefits will be reduced if you earn more than the yearly earnings limits. After you reach your full retirement age, SSA will recalculate your benefit amount to give you credit for any months you did not receive a benefit because of your earnings. They will send you a letter that explains any increase in your benefit amount.
