Q) My 16 year old daughter lost her s.s. Card and I need to get a duplicate for her so she can get her drivers license. How can I do it? Will I be able to go to the Annapolis branch or can I do it over the internet?? Brian page 443-***-6**9. Thanks
A) According to the Social Security Administration – 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.
