A) According to the Social Security Administration: You can get an original Social Security card or a replacement card if yours is lost or stolen. There is no charge for a Social Security card. This service is free.
You can use a my Social Security account to request a replacement Social Security card online if you:
Are a U.S. citizen age 18 years or older with a U.S. mailing address;

District of Columbia (driver’s license only);
Idaho (driver’s license only);
North Dakota (driver’s license only);
Pennsylvania (driver’s license only);
Wisconsin (driver’s license only).
If you cannot apply for a card online, you will need to:
Show the required documents. We need to see different documents depending on your citizenship and the type of card you are requesting. See Learn What Documents You Need to find out what documents you will have to show.
