  • Check if you can apply online: The Social Security Administration (SSA) allows you to request a replacement card online if you have a my Social Security account https://faq.ssa.gov/en-us/Topic/article/KA-02017. This is the most convenient option.

  • Apply in person: If you can't apply online, you can visit your local Social Security office. You'll need to complete an application (Form SS-5) and provide documents to verify your identity and citizenship status. You can find more information about the required documents on the SSA website https://www.ssa.gov/number-card/replace-card.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

You are generally only entitled to three replacement cards per year.

There is no fee to replace a lost or stolen Social Security card.

I hope this helps!
