Trying to apply for a social security card,

Q) trying to apply for a social security card.

A) According to Social Security Administration; You can replace your card for free if it is lost or stolen. However, you are limited to three replacement cards in a year and 10 during your lifetime. Legal name changes and other exceptions do not count toward these limits. For example, changes in noncitizen status that require card updates may not count toward these limits. Also, you may not be affected by these limits if you can prove you need the card to prevent a significant hardship.

To get a replacement card, you will need to:

Complete an Application For A Social Security Card (Form SS-5);
Present an unexpired original document with identifying information and preferably a recent photograph that proves your identity;
Show evidence of your U.S. citizenship if you were born outside the United States and did not show proof of citizenship when you got your card; and Show evidence of your current lawful noncitizen status if you are not a U.S. citizen.
Your replacement card will have the same name and number as your previous card.

  1. The Social Security Administration does not charge for a Social Security card. Some private companies, not affiliated with Social Security or any other government agency, charge fees for this service. However, these companies offer no advantage and you will have to provide documents directly to Social Security. Be cautious about giving your private information, especially your Social Security number, to anyone.

    According to Social Security Administration regarding Replacing your Card:

    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 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. We cannot accept photocopies or notarized copies of documents. Any documents you mail to us will be returned to you along with a receipt.
