How can I replace a lost Social Security card?

En español | First, gather up various documents that prove your age, identity, and U.S. citizenship or legal immigration status. A birth certificate, driver's license and passport may do the trick, but other types of documents can also work. All documents must be originals or copies of originals certified by the agencies that issued them — no photocopies or notarized copies.

Obtain an application for a Social Security card online at or at your local Social Security office, fill it out and deliver it or mail it in, with the documents. They will be returned to you. Social Security will send you your new card as soon as it verifies your documents. The new card will have the same number as the old one. For more information, call 1-800-772-1213.
