A) Here are the steps on how to get a replacement Social Security card:
Check if you need a replacement card. In most cases, simply knowing your Social Security number (SSN) is enough. You may not need a replacement card if you can provide your SSN to a government agency or employer. However, if you need to prove your SSN, such as for a job application or to open a bank account, you will need to get a replacement card.
Gather the required documents. To replace your Social Security card, you will need to provide proof of your identity and citizenship. You can use one of the following documents to prove your identity:
Military ID card
Native American tribal document
U.S. citizenship certificate
U.S. birth certificate
U.S. naturalization certificate
To prove your citizenship, you can use one of the following documents: * U.S. passport * U.S. birth certificate * U.S. naturalization certificate * Certificate of citizenship * Certificate of naturalization * Certificate of arrival
Apply for a replacement card online or in person. You can apply for a replacement Social Security card online or in person at your local Social Security office. To apply online, you will need to create a My Social Security account. Once you have created an account, you can log in and start your application. To apply in person, you will need to bring the required documents to your local Social Security office.
Pay the application fee. There is a $30 application fee for a replacement Social Security card. You can pay the fee by check, money order, or credit card.
Wait for your new card to arrive. Once your application is processed, you will receive your new Social Security card in the mail. It usually takes about 10 to 14 days to receive your new card.
