You may not use your Social Security card often, but when you need it, it’s usually for something important. If you’ve lost your Social Security card, you can request a replacement through the Social Security office online.
Unfortunately, some states don’t allow a replacement card request online. In these states, you’ll need to apply through the mail:
- New Hampshire
- West Virginia
When searching for information about Social Security or other government IDs, be sure to use trusted sources such as government websites. Don’t be fooled by scammers posing as government agents who could swipe your Social Security Number.
