A) I understand that you are writing to inquire about replacing your Social Security card. You also mentioned that you sent an email about this earlier today and had a problematic outcome.
I can help you with this. Here are the steps on how to replace your Social Security number:
Go to the Social Security Administration (SSA) website and download the Application for a Social Security Card: https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ss-5.pdf.
Fill out the application and gather the required documentation. The documentation you need will vary depending on your citizenship status and how you obtained your Social Security number. You can find a list of the required documentation on the SSA website.
Mail the application and documentation to the SSA office that is nearest to you. You can find the address of the SSA office on the SSA website.
The SSA will review your application and documentation. If they approve your application, they will send you a new Social Security card in the mail.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind when replacing your Social Security number:
You will need to provide original documents or documents that have been certified by the issuing agency. The SSA does not accept photocopies of documents.
You must be able to prove your identity and your citizenship or lawful alien status.
The SSA may require you to appear in person at a local office to apply for a replacement Social Security card.
If you have any questions about replacing your Social Security number, you can contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213.
I hope this helps!
I also understand that you had a problematic outcome when you emailed the SSA earlier today. I’m not sure what the issue was. In the meantime, you can also try visiting a local SSA office in person. They may be able to help you with your request more quickly.
I hope you get your new Social Security card soon!
